Compressed sensing photoacoustic tomography reduces to compressed sensing for undersampled Fourier measurements

10/16/2020 ∙ by Giovanni S. Alberti, et al. ∙ 0

Photoacoustic tomography (PAT) is an emerging imaging modality that aims at measuring the high-contrast optical properties of tissues by means of high-resolution ultrasonic measurements. The interaction between these two types of waves is based on the thermoacoustic effect. In recent years, many works have investigated the applicability of compressed sensing to PAT, in order to reduce measuring times while maintaining a high reconstruction quality. However, in most cases, theoretical guarantees are missing. In this work, we show that in many measurement setups of practical interest, compressed sensing PAT reduces to compressed sensing for undersampled Fourier measurements. This is achieved by applying known reconstruction formulae in the case of the free-space model for wave propagation, and by applying the theories of Riesz bases and nonuniform Fourier series in the case of the bounded domain model. Extensive numerical simulations illustrate and validate the approach.
