Diffuse tomography

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


We consider certain models that have been used recently to describe photon migration in a random media with the purpose of imaging this unknown media on the basis of boundary measurements. We discuss the performance of numerical algorithms to tackle the reconstruction problem associated to such models. Some of these algorithms are of nonlinear optimization type, while others proceed in a finite number of steps and do not require iteration. We study also the effect of noise in the performance of these algorithms as well as the deterioration of their performance as the amount of data is reduced.
