31) is that the change in the absorption coefficient (assuming constant scattering coefficient and refractive index) is related to the change in the optical signal (the difference between the emitted and detected lights), given the baseline condition of the medium. 2 Measurement of Blood Oxygenation In order to relate the measured absorption and scattering of light to the underlying physiology, the starting point is the modified Beer-Lambert’s law:   I OD ¼ À ln ¼ «Cds þ G, (1:32) I0 where OD is the optical density; I0 and I are the input and output light intensities, respectively; « is the extinction coefficient, which is a function of the type of absorbers and the Technological Fundamentals wavelength of light; C is the concentration of the absorber; d is the optical source-detector distance; s is the differential pathlength factor (DPF), which is a function of the wavelength of light and the type of tissue and represents the increment of effective pathlength of light due to scattering; and G is a factor accounting for measurement geometry and contact loss.

In this way, the inversion of an ill-conditioned A is performed via simple matrix multiplications. Variations of the SVD method have been developed to address the problem of instability due to singular values, which effectively amplifies the noise. An alternative approach is to use backprojection. Backprojection does not rely on any particular photon migration model in solving the forward problem. Although diffuse optical tomography (DOT) differs from CT in that tissue is highly scattering to NIR light, the simplicity of backprojection algorithms has gained some users in DOT, assuming that the depth of the physiological activation can be assumed or ignored.

Image formation (see the next section) using a single-element transducer requires mechanical movement over the region of interest. The vast majority of transducers used in clinical practice are transducer arrays, consisting of a large number of much smaller elements, which can be driven independently. 11. 11 (a) Plot of the pressure produced by a plane-piston single-element transducer as a function of distance from the transducer. (b) Schematics of one- and two-dimensional transducer arrays. 14 I of individual elements in a transducer array to form a B-mode (brightness) image.
