Performance of blind deconvolution in optoacoustic tomography.
J. Innov. Opt. Health Sci. 4, 385-393 (2011)
In this paper, we consider the use of blind deconvolution for optoacoustic (photoacoustic) imaging and investigate the performance of the method as means for increasing the resolution of the reconstructed image beyond the physical restrictions of the system. The method is demonstrated with optoacoustic measurement obtained from six-day-old mice, imaged in the near-infrared using a broadband hydrophone in a circular scanning configuration. We find that estimates of the unknown point spread function, achieved by blind deconvolution, improve the resolution and contrast in the images and show promise for enhancing optoacoustic images.
