A novel multi-view non-contact dynamic diffuse optical tomographic imaging system for the clinical evaluation of vasculature in the lower extremities is presented. The system design and implementation are described in detail, including methods for simultaneously obtaining and reconstructing diffusely reflected and transmitted light using a system of mirrors and a single CCD camera. The system and its performance using numeric simulations and optical phantoms. Measurements of a healthy foot in vivo demonstrates the potential of the system in assessing perfusion within the foot.
