Abstract

In order to obtain precise reconstruction results in fluorescence molecular tomography (FMT), large-scale matrix equations would be solved in the inverse problem generally. Thus, much time and memory needs to be consumed. In this paper, a permissible region extraction strategy is proposed to solve this problem. First, a preliminary result is rapidly reconstructed using the weight matrix compressed by principal component analysis or uniform sampling. And then the reconstructed target area in this preliminary result is considered as the a priori permissible region to guide the final reconstruction. Phantom experiments with double fluorescent targets are performed to test the performance of the strategy. The results illustrate that the proposed strategy can significantly accelerate the image reconstruction in FMT almost without quality degradation.
