Abstract

Optical tomography is used to map the iodine vapor density in a plane. Two-dimensional images are obtained with 1-cm spatial resolution using a fan beam geometry with a 28-cm radius fan source circle. The images are reconstructed using the convolution backprojection algorithm with data collected in 0.1 sec from 90 detectors on a full circle using 90–360 fan source positions. Experimental results quantitatively confirm a theoretical analysis of the noise in the reconstructed image, including the effects of correlated noise, position within the image, and spatial resolution. The noise amplitude–absorption length product for a 2-cm pixel size is 6 × 10−4 which is equivalent to an iodine concentration of 6 ppm.
