In this study, time-domain fluorescence diffuse optical tomography in biological tissue is numerically investigated using a total light approach. Total light is a summation of excitation light and zero-lifetime emission light divided by quantum yield. The zero-lifetime emission light is an emitted fluorescence light calculated by assuming that the fluorescence lifetime is zero. The zero-lifetime emission light is calculated by deconvolving the actually measured emission light with a lifetime function, an exponential function for fluorescence decay. The object for numerical simulation is a 2-D 10 mm-radius circle with the optical properties simulating biological tissues for near infrared light, and contains regions with fluorophore. The inverse problem of fluorescence diffuse optical tomography is solved using time-resolved simulated measurement data of the excitation and total lights for reconstructing the bsorption coefficient and fluorophore concentration simultaneously. The mean time of flight is used as the featured data-type extracted from the time-resolved data. The reconstructed images of fluorophore concentration show good quantitativeness and spatial reproducibility. By use of the total light approach, computation is performed much faster than the conventional ones.
