- Increasing the imaging speed is a central aim in photoacoustic tomography. This issue is especially important in the case of sequential scanning approaches as applied for most existing optical detection schemes. In this work we address this issue using techniques of compressed sensing. We demonstrate, that the number of measurements can significantly be reduced by allowing general linear measurements instead of point-wise pressure values. A main requirement in compressed sensing is the sparsity of the unknowns to be recovered. For that purpose, we develop the concept of sparsifying temporal transforms for three-dimensional photoacoustic tomography. We establish a two-stage algorithm that recovers the complete pressure signals in a first step and then apply a standard reconstruction algorithm such as back-projection. This yields a novel reconstruction method with much lower complexity than existing compressed sensing approaches for photoacoustic tomography. Reconstruction results for simulated and for experimental data verify that the proposed compressed sensing scheme allows for reducing the number of spatial measurements without reducing the spatial resolution.
