Abstract
In MRI-guided diffuse optical tomography of the human brain function, three-dimensional anatomical head model consisting of up to five segmented tissue types can be specified. With disregard to misclassification between different tissues, uncertainty in the optical properties of each tissue type becomes the dominant cause of systematic error in image reconstruction. In this study we present a quantitative evaluation of image resolution dependence due to such uncertainty. Our results show that given a head model which provides a realistic description of its tissue optical property distribution, high-density diffuse optical tomography with cortically constrained image reconstruction are capable of detecting focal activation up to 21.81 mm below the human scalp at an imaging quality better than or equal to 1.0 cm in localization error and 1.0 cm3 in FVHM with a tolerance of uncertainty in tissue optical properties between +15% and -20%.
