Optimal Analysis Method for Dynamic Contrast-Enhanced Diffuse Optical Tomography

Figure 5

Plots showing the average reconstructed absorption increase in the region of interest at all five concentrations. Please note that unit of m−1 is used for display purposes. The blue circles are the actual data, whereas the red dashed line is a linear fit to this data. The red bar graphs represent the deviation between the data and the linear fit. This deviation was obtained by taking the absolute value of the difference between the data and the linear fit, normalizing it with respect to the maximum value of the data (blue circles), and then multiplying by a constant to elucidate the deviation. Each column of graphs contains data from one of the reconstruction methods, while each row contains the graphs from a given case.
