Author Affiliations +
A co-planar, simultaneous, photoacoustic tomography guided, diffused optical tomography (CS-PAT-DOT) methodology has been presented in this paper. We detect the absorption of sub-regions with different absorption characteristics in deep tissue with a high spatial resolution. To this aim, we initially utilize compressed sensing (CS), time reversal (TR) and back projection (BP) reconstruction algorithms to reconstruct a priori information inside a heterogeneous phantom. Then the reconstructed images are used in DOT image reconstruction through the total variation method. Improvements obtained from such hybrid methodology are measured by comparing DOT and CS-PAT-DOT images. It will also show that each of the reconstructions based on the proposed method has a unique capability to accurately detect heterogeneities in the tissue at different depths; significantly improving spatial resolution in DOT images. The focus of this study is directed towards quantifying the concentrations of endogenous chromophores, e.g., oxyhemoglobin, deoxyhemoglobin and cytochrome-c-oxidase etc., which are significant indices in detecting tissue abnormalities.
