Image Reconstruction from Experimental Data in Diffusion Tomography
The authors have recently introduced a novel imaging algorithm for optical/diffusion tomography, the “Elliptic Systems Method” (ESM). In this article the performance of the ESM is analyzed for experimental data. Images are obtained for the case of a single source and seven (7) detector locations, an unusually limited number of source/detector pairs. These images are verified by numerical simulation. A new approach to data fitting (at the detectors) is introduced.
