22 November 2000 Volume imaging with diffuse light: method, device, and clinical application
Author Affiliations +
Diffuse optical imaging and tomography is of some interest in the diagnosis of testicular pathologies. For a clinical evaluation of 3D optical tomography a special laser scanning device as well as dedicated tomography algorithms have been developed. With the device we are able to obtain continuous- wave tomographic scans from an object under investigation using different laser wavelengths. Tomographic image reconstruction is based on the solution of the linearized inverse problem of optical absorption imaging for a three- dimensional volume. Priority is given to a spatial resolution adapted volume discretization and an efficient matrix solution algorithm based on singular value decomposition.
