Nonuniqueness in diffusion-based optical tomography.
882 - 884.
A condition on nonuniqueness in optical tomography is stated. The main result applies to steady-state (dc) diffusion-based optical tomography, wherein we demonstrate that simultaneous unique recovery of diffusion and absorption coefficients cannot be achieved. A specific example of two images that give identical de data is presented. If the refractive index is considered an unknown, then nonuniqueness also occurs in frequency-domain and time-domain optical tomography, if the underlying model of the diffusion approximation is employed.
