A novel time-domain optical method to reconstruct the relative concentration, lifetime, and depth of a fluorescent inclusion is described. We establish an analytical method for the estimations of these parameters for a localized fluorescent object directly from the simple evaluations of continuous wave intensity, exponential decay, and temporal position of the maximum of the fluorescence temporal point-spread function. Since the more complex full inversion process is not involved, this method permits a robust and fast processing in exploring the properties of a fluorescent inclusion. This method is confirmed by in vitro and in vivo experiments.
