Abstract
In the reconstruction of the quantitative photoacoustic tomography (QPAT), forward models for both the optical and acoustic problems are usually needed to predict the measurement data from a guess of the distribution of the optical parameters. The diffusion approximation (DA) is the one most often employed as the optical forward model in the QPAT. However, this model usually results in predicted data deviating far from the actual measurements especially in low scattering tissues. To tackle such a problem, we propose a reconstruction method where the modeling error of the DA is modeled and considered in the framework of Bayesian inference. Experimental results show that modeling of the approximation error and considering it in the reconstruction procedure can significantly improve the reconstructed results of the QPAT.
