The Inverse Problem of Radioisotope Diagnosis; A Computational Method for Determining the Location and Size of Tumors

Publication Date Aug 01, 1969 by Kaplan S., McNabb A., Trujillo D., Siemsen J.K.

An idea is presented for an approach to the problem of finding lesions through interpretation of radioisotope scan data. The approach proposed includes an experimental measurement of the appropriate Green's function and some mathematical tricks for solving the resulting inverse problem. The tricks are illustrated by numerical examples. Pitfalls in the approach are pointed out and devices for overcoming them discussed.
