Abstract

Two mesh-based methods including dual meshing and adaptive meshing are developed to improve the finite element-based reconstruction of both absorption and scattering images of heterogeneous turbid media. The idea of dual meshing scheme is to use a fine mesh for the solution of photon propagation and a coarse mesh for the inversion of optical property distributions. The adaptive meshing method is accomplished by the automatic mesh refinement in the region of heterogeneity during reconstruction. These schemes are validated using tissue-like phantom measurements. Our results demonstrate the capabilities of the dual meshing and adaptive meshing in both qualitative and quantitative improvement of optical image reconstruction.
