Abstract

Diffuse optical tomography is a novel imaging technique that resolves and quantifies the optical properties of objects buried in turbid media. Typically, numerical solutions of the diffusion equation are employed to construct the tomographic problem when media of complex geometries are investigated. Numerical methods offer implementation simplicity but also significant computation burden, especially when large three-dimensional reconstructions are involved. We present an alternative method of performing tomography of diffuse media of arbitrary geometries by means of an analytical approach, the Kirchhoff approximation. We show that the method is extremely efficient in computation times and consider its potential as a real-time three-dimensional imaging tool.
