A study was performed on a compact, parallel-detection diffuse optical mammography system. The system consisted of three diodes at 785, 808 and 830 nm, 64×64 channel source/detector optic fibers for light delivery/receiving, and 16 computer gain controlled photomultiplier tubes for parallel detection. The finite element based reconstruction algorithms were used to obtain the 2D and 3D images of optical absorption and reduced scattering coefficients.
