25 March 2013 Resolution studies of a hand-held optical imager
Author Affiliations +
A Gen-2 hand-held optical imager has been developed capable of 2D surface imaging and 3D tomography. In the current work, the capability of the imager to resolve two closely placed targets is assessed via 2D and 3D tomographic studies. Resolution studies have been carried out under various experimental conditions using slab phantoms. Preliminary 2D surface images of reflected measurements have demonstrated the ability of the system to resolve 0.95cm diameter targets placed 0.5cm apart at 2cm depth. Three dimensional tomography reconstructions are currently performed to assess the resolution capacity under different experimental conditions.
