    Abstract

    We have developed an optical fluorescence image reconstruction algorithm that is based on the equation of radiative transfer to model the light transport in biological tissue. A nonlinear optimization method iteratively employs the forward model for recovering the unknown fluorophore absorption distribution of a fluorescent probe. We show image reconstruction results of a three-dimensional fluorescent source distribution in a tissuelike medium.
