Reconstruction for thermoacoustic tomography in an arbitrary detection geometry is proposed by time-reversing the measured field back to the time when the thermoacoustic sources are excited. Time reversal of the field can be implemented efficiently by applying the delay-and-sum algorithm. The theoretical conclusions are supported by a numerical simulation of three-dimensional thermoacoustic tomography.
