Abstract
We propose a theoretical framework for consecutively reconstructing absorption and scattering distributions in turbid soft tissue in an iterative manner. This approach takes advantage of the stability of a recently reported least-squares fixed-point iterative method for reconstructing an optical absorption coefficient map to iteratively update estimates of absorption and scattering for each iteration. Simulations demonstrate that this method converges to an accurate estimate of the optical properties within only a small number of iterations and is robust to noise at realistic signal-to-noise levels.
