Paper Abstract

Frequency domain diffuse optical tomography (DOT) is a recently emerging technique that uses arrays of sources and detectors to obtain spatially dependent optical parameters of tissue. Here, we describe the design of a hybrid MR-DOT system for dynamic imaging cancer. The combined system acquires both MR and optical data simultaneously. The performance of the system is tested with phantom and in-vivo studies. Gd-DTPA and ICG was used for this purpose and the enhancement kinetics of both agents are recorded using the hybrid system.
