Diffuse optical tomography (DOT) is showing promise for breast tumor detection by estimating optical property coefficients of breast tissue. In our previous study, we have successfully reconstructed the synthetic data into three-dimensional (3-D) images with a cylindrical model. Thus, the work within this study develops a 3-D image reconstruction algorithm of DOT with a breast-like model for screening breast tumor. Reconstruction results show that the quality of reconstructed images can be effective for tumor screening.
