Abstract
A new imaging approach for three-dimensional localization and characterization of absorptive, scattering or fluorescent objects in a turbid medium is presented and demonstrated using simulated and experimental data. This approach uses a multi-source and multi-detector signal acquisition scheme and independent component analysis (ICA) from information theory for target localization and characterization. Independent component analysis of the perturbation in the spatial intensity distribution or the fluorescent signal measured on the medium boundary sorts out the embedded objects. The location and optical characteristics (size, shape and optical property) of the embedded objects are obtained from a Green's function analysis based on an appropriate model for light propagation in the background medium and back-projections of the retrieved independent components.
