Abstract
As a novel optical molecular imaging modality, Bioluminescence Tomography (BLT) aims at quantitative reconstruction of the bioluminescent source distribution inside the biological tissue from the optical signals measured on the living animal surface, which is a highly ill-posed inverse problem. In this paper, with the finite element method solving the diffusion equation, an iterative regularization algorithm, referred to as least square QR-factorization (LSQR), is applied to the inverse problem in BLT. The affect of the preconditioning strategy on the LSQR method (PLSQR) for BLT is also investigated. The Simulations with a heterogeneous mouse chest phantom demonstrate that by incorporating a priori knowledge of the permissible source region, the LSQR method can reconstruct the source accurately and stably. Moreover, by employing preconditioning strategy, PLSQR outperforms LSQR in terms of source power density and convergence speed.
