1 January 2010 Real-time diffuse optical tomography based on structured illumination
Author Affiliations +
A new optical acquisition scheme based on a pair of digital micromirror devices is developed and applied to three-dimensional tomographic imaging of turbid media. By using pairs of illumination-detection patterns with a single detector, we were able to perform high-resolution quantitative volumetric imaging of absorption heterogeneities embedded in optically thick samples. Additionally, a tomographic reconstruction algorithm was implemented on a graphical processor unit to provide optical reconstructions at a frame rate of 2 Hz. The structured illumination method proposed in this work has significant cost advantages over camera systems, as only a single detector is required. This configuration also has the potential to increase frame rate.
