We introduce here a transport-theory-based PDE-constrained multispectral imaging algorithm for direct reconstruction of the spatial distribution of chromophores in tissue. The method solves the forward and inverse problems simultaneously in the framework of a reduced Hessian sequential quadratic programming method. The performance of the new algorithm is evaluated using numerical and experimental studies involving tumor bearing mice. The results show that the PDE-constrained multispectral method leads to 15-fold acceleration in the image reconstruction of tissue chromophores when compared to the unconstrained multispectral approach and also gives more accurate results when compared to the traditional two-step method.
