Abstract

We propose a novel noncontact fluorescence molecular tomography system that achieves full-angle capacity with the use of a new rotary-mirrors-based imaging head. In the imaging head, four plane mirrors are mounted on a rotating gantry to enable illumination and detection over 360°. In comparison with existing full-angle systems, our system does not require rotation of the specimen animal, a large and heavy light source (with scanning head), or a bulky camera (with filters and lens). The system design and implementation are described in detail. Both physical phantom and in vivo experiments are performed to verify the performance of the proposed system.
