Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper presents a theoretical analysis of the performance of a new constrained spectroscopic imaging method, called SLIM (spectral localization by imaging). Specifically, its Sensitivity to random noise and compartmental inhomogeneities is characterized, and a proof is given that the compartmental measure-ments obtained from this technique converge to the exact average compartmental signal strengths no matter what compartmental inhomogeneities exist. Simulations and experimental results are also presented to demonstrate these theoretical results.
