Abstract

This paper proposes a post-processing strategy for recovered images of fluorescence molecular tomography. A threshold value is adaptively obtained from the recovered images without external interference, which is objective because it is extracted from the reconstructed result. The recovered images from simulation experiments and physical phantom experiments are processed by this threshold method. And by visualization, the processed images are clearer than those with no post-processing. The full width at half-maximum and contrast-to-noise ratio are then utilized to further verify the effectiveness of the post-processing method, being capable of removing spurious information from the original images, thus bringing convenience to users.
