Abstract
Recently new technologies for detecting biomolecules have been developed and are opening a new era of medical imaging. Chemiluminescence and fluorescence are emerging as promising tools for these tasks. These molecules emit optical photons that can be observed outside the body. Unfortunately, they are heavily scattered and absorbed in biological tissue. This is an obstacle for determining a way of mapping an original source distribution. In order to overcome this obstacle, we suggest a new concept, Optical Emission Computed Tomography and test its feasibility with computer simulation.
