Bioluminescence tomography (BLT) is a promising new method in biomedical imaging. The BLT problem is an ill-posed inverse source problem, usually studied through a regularization technique. A new approach is proposed for solving the BLT problem based on an adjoint equation. Numerical examples show that the new formulation allows us to obtain accurate solutions.
