Abstract

The goal of this work is to resolve the limited-view problem of photoacoustic tomography (PAT). We report a two-loop iteration method to inverse the photoacoustic sources from the measured photoacoustic signals. PAT reconstruction with this method does not depend on the detection path. Therefore, the proposed method can provide recognizable image even when the detector only scans a small angle (about 20°~30°). The comparison with the delay-and-sum method shows the advantage of the proposed method in reconstructing image from incomplete data.
