We propose a laser speckle projection tomography (LSPT) method to obtain a three-dimensional (3D) flowing image. The method combines the advantages of optical projection tomography and laser speckle imaging to reconstruct the visualization of 3D flowing structure. With LSPT, the flowing signal is extracted by laser speckle contrast method and the 3D flowing image is reconstructed by the filtered back-projection algorithm. A phantom experiment is performed to demonstrate that LSPT is able to obtain 3D flowing structure, influenced by concentration and the flow speed.
