Abstract

Fluorescence tomography of diffuse media can yield optimal three-dimensional imaging when multiple projections over 360 ° geometries are captured, compared with limited projection angle systems such as implementations in the slab geometry. We demonstrate how it is possible to perform noncontact, 360 ° projection fluorescence tomography of mice using CCD-camera-based detection in free space, i.e., in the absence of matching fluids. This approach achieves high spatial sampling of photons propagating through tissue and yields a superior information content data set compared with fiber-based 360 ° implementations. Reconstruction feasibility using 36 projections in 10° steps is demonstrated in mice.
