Abstract

There are two reasons that might be attributed to the difficulty for the imaging problem in optical tomography, and in inverse problems in general. Firstly: the problem is mostly underdetermined. Secondly, the inverse problem is highly ill-conditioned due to the diffusive nature of the photons. We introduce Bayesian optimization that provides a method to incorporate a priori knowledge in the inversion and we show with the concept of nullspace that the Bayesian prior probability generalizes conventional regularization by introducing a prior model. Reconstruction results of test objects from simulated data and a reconstruction example on a head model show that use the nullspace gives considerable improvement.
