The image reconstruction for fluorescence molecular tomography via a non-uniform mesh
- 16 Downloads
As an optical molecular imaging modality, fluorescence molecular tomography (FMT) can monitor the activities of organisms in vivo at the molecular and cellular levels. However, the recovered image quality is affected by mesh voxel when the finite element method is utilized to recover the fluorescence probe. The target localization is likely to deviate from the actual target under the coarse mesh, but using the fine mesh will increase the number of unknowns, which makes the computational burden heavier and further aggravate the ill-posedness. To solve the problem, a reconstruction strategy using a non-uniform mesh for FMT is developed in this paper. The numerical experiment and physical experiment validated that the strategy is capable and effective for FMT.
