Abstract

Diffuse optical tomography (DOT) aims at recovering three-dimensional images of absorption and scattering parameters inside diffusive body based on small number of transmission measurements at the boundary of the body. This image reconstruction problem is known to be an ill-posed inverse problem, which requires use of prior information for successful reconstruction. We present a shape based method for DOT, where we assume a priori that the unknown body consist of disjoint subdomains with different optical properties. We utilize spherical harmonics expansion to parameterize the reconstruction problem with respect to the subdomain boundaries, and introduce a finite element (FEM) based algorithm that uses a novel 3D mesh subdivision technique to describe the mapping from spherical harmonics coefficients to the 3D absorption and scattering distributions inside a unstructured volumetric FEM mesh. We evaluate the shape based method by reconstructing experimental DOT data, from a cylindrical phantom with one inclusion with high absorption and one with high scattering. The reconstruction was monitored, and we found a 87% reduction in the Hausdorff measure between targets and reconstructed inclusions, 96% success in recovering the location of the centers of the inclusions and 87% success in average in the recovery for the volumes.

Demonstration of the tetrahedral element subdivision scheme used for the two different cases of surface-tetrahedron intersection. (a) In the case when one node denoted (+) is on the one side of the surface while the three others denoted by (-) on the other partition created by the surface. Having found the three intersection points along the adjacent edges of the node, denoted by (x) we divide the tetraherdon into eight subelements shown exploded in (c). (b) In this case, two nodes lay on each side of the surface dividing the tetrahedron into two pentahedral prisms, one on each side of the surface. Having found the four intersection points kv 1kv 4, denoted (x) along the edges connecting each the nodes on the one side (+) of the surface to those on the other (-), we cut the element into six tetrahedra subelements shown exploded in (d).

The experimental setup used. The sources are denoted by “x” and detectors are de- noted “o”. We also have drawn the positions of the two blobs the one on the left with double the absorption of the background and the one on theright that has double the scattering.

Comparison between the target, the reconstruction with the pixel based and the shape based method in vertical cross sections along the x-z plane (a) The real position of the µ a target in a slice along the y=0 plane and (b) the real position of the µ′s target in a slice along the y=-12.3. (c) The y=0 slice of the recovered µ a image from the use of a pixel based method as described in [34].(d) The y=-12.3 slice of the recovered µ s image from the use of a pixel based method as described in [34]. We notice that the pixel based reconstruction is successful but the contrast is smoothed out due to the regularisation used and the homogeneous background contains artifacts.(e) A view along the y-axis of the recovered µ a object from the shape based reconstruction in solid color and the initial guess for the object as an outline. (f) A view along the y-axis of the recovered µs object from the shape based reconstruction in solid color and the initial guess for the object as an outline. We notice that the recovered shapes and locations of the object are very close to the expected ones.

Comparison of the view along the central x-y plane between target, the reconstruction with the pixel based and the shape based method As in figure 3 for horizontal slices along the z=0 plane, the real positions of the targets in (a) and (b) and the result from the pixel based method in (c) and (d), and a view along the z-axis (e) and (f) for the shape based method.

Metrics used to assess the quality of the reconstruction, plotted for the iterations of the shape evolution. (a) The normalized residual ‖g-A(γn )‖2 2/|g-A(γ 1)‖2 2. (b) the volume ratios between targets and reconstructed shapes. (c) the Hausdorff measure for the mismatch between the surfaces of the shapes and (d) the distance between the center of the target objects and the reconstructed ones.

Reconstructions from experimental data, using different initial positions, as presented in the media files attached to the paper. The first row of the graph consists of the initial guesses in yellow and the experimental targets, red for absorption and blue for scattering displayed in Fig. 6(a) (media 1) Fig. 6(b) (media 2) and Fig. 6(c) (media 3). In the second row we have the reconstruction that resulted from those different initial guesses respectively, with the targets recovered successfully in each case.
