In this contribution we introduce adaptive finite element methods for
forward modeling in fluorescence optical tomography. Adaptive local
mesh refinement increases the accuracy of the solutions of coupled
photon diffusion equations in a computationally optimal manner and
when implemented in the inverse problem, can impact the resolution of
fluorescence enhanced tomography. An adaptive Galerkin finite element
scheme is implemented and the simulation results are compared with
experimental data obtained from a tissue phantom by an area
illumination and area detection scheme.
