Abstract

Purpose: Recently reported quantitative photoacoustic tomography (PAT) has significantly expanded the utilities of PAT because it allows for recovery of tissue optical absorption coefficient which directly correlates with tissue physiological information. However, the recovery of optical absorption coefficient by the existing quantitative PAT approaches strongly depends on the accuracy of absorbed energy density distribution, and on the knowledge of accurate strength and distribution of incident light source. The purpose of this study is to develop a new algorithm for the reconstruction of optical absorption coefficient that does not depend on these initial parameters. Methods: Here the authors propose a novel one-step reconstruction approach that can directly recover optical absorption coefficient from photoacoustic measurements along boundary domain. The authors validate the method using simulation and phantom experiments. Results: The authors have demonstrated experimental evidence that it is possible to directly recover optical absorption coefficient maps using boundary photoacoustic measurements coupled with the photon diffusion equation in just one step. The authors found that the method described is able to quantitatively reconstruct absorbing objects with different sizes and optical contrast levels. Conclusions: Compared to the authors' previous two-step methods, the reconstruction results obtained here show that the one-step scheme can significantly improve the accuracy of absorption coefficient recovery. © 2012 American Association of Physicists in Medicine.
