Accurate quantification of fluorescent targets within turbid media based on a decoupled fluorescence Monte Carlo model.


We propose a method based on a decoupled fluorescence Monte Carlo model for constructing fluorescence Jacobians to enable accurate quantification of fluorescence targets within turbid media. The effectiveness of the proposed method is validated using two cylindrical phantoms enclosing fluorescent targets within homogeneous and heterogeneous background media. The results demonstrate that our method can recover relative concentrations of the fluorescent targets with higher accuracy than the perturbation fluorescence Monte Carlo method. This suggests that our method is suitable for quantitative fluorescence diffuse optical tomography, especially for in vivo imaging of fluorophore targets for diagnosis of different diseases and abnormalities.
