Abstract
In this study, we report the development of a near infrared broadband, steady-state, multi-channel imaging system to quantify hemodynamic parameters, which is to be used for measuring the rat brain tumors in vivo. The imager was calibrated with laboratory phantoms to eliminate spectral effects of the CCD spectrometers, optical fibers, and multiplexer channels. The calibration procedures also help determine the source strength in order to obtain accurate image reconstructions. A multi-channel, multi-wavelength, spectrally constrained reconstruction algorithm is under development to obtain tomographic maps of concentrations of hemoglobin derivatives and reduced scattering coefficients. The developed imaging system and reconstruction algorithm were validated with dynamic multi-tube phantoms.
