This proposal is focused on the three-dimensional NIR imaging reconstruction using ultrasound localization for cancer detection and diagnosis. During the reported period, we have achieved simultaneous reconstruction of optical absorption and scattering coefficients of heterogeneities using a dual-mesh scheme based on finite element method, and introduced a new simple two-layer model to correct diffusive wave distortion caused by underlying chest wall of patients.
