28 April 2004 Half-time-based reflectivity tomography and its application to thermoacoustic tomography
Author Affiliations +
Thermoacoustic tomography (TAT) is an emerging imaging technique with great potential for a wide range of biomedical imaging applications. In this work, we propose and investigate reconstruction approaches for TAT that are based on the half-time reflectivity tomography paradigm. We demonstrate that half-time reconstruction approaches can produce images in TAT that possess better statistical properties than images produced by use of conventional reconstruction approaches.
