Title: Tomographic Reconstruction Methods for Optical and Intra-operative Functional Imaging

Abstract: Tomographic imaging has revolutionized the medical domain over the last 50 years. Imaging modalities like CT, PET or SPECT have enabled non–invasive diagnosis, patient-specific modeling as well as more accurate treatment, and are increasingly establishing themselves also for interventional use. The theoretical basis for tomographic imaging has been developing over the last century as well, with series expansion methods quickly being adopted as the method of choice for many modalities due to their flexibility.

This work explores series expansion based methods for two novel, emerging imaging modalities. The first one is Diffuse Optical Tomography, which together with new fluorescent tracers enables visualization of molecular processes in vivo using non-ionizing radiation. The second is a new imaging modality called Freehand SPECT using tracked functional detectors, developed for interventional functional imaging in the operating room.
