Mitigating artifacts via half-time reconstruction in thermoacoustic tomography
Thermoacoustic tomography (TAT) is an ultrasound-mediated biophotonic imaging modality with great potential for a wide range of biomedical imaging applications. In this work, we demonstrate that half-time reconstruction approaches for TAT can mitigate image artifacts due to heterogeneous acoustic properties of an object. We also discuss how half-time reconstruction approaches permit explicit control of statistically complementary information in the measurement data, which can facilitate the reduction of image variances.
