Laplace deconvolution and its application to Dynamic Contrast Enhanced imaging

Abstract : In the present paper we consider the problem of Laplace deconvolution with noisy discrete observations. The study is motivated by Dynamic Contrast Enhanced imaging using a bolus of contrast agent, a procedure which allows considerable improvement in {evaluating} the quality of a vascular network and its permeability and is widely used in medical assessment of brain flows or cancerous tumors. Although the study is motivated by medical imaging application, we obtain a solution of a general problem of Laplace deconvolution based on noisy data which appears in many different contexts. We propose a new method for Laplace deconvolution which is based on expansions of the convolution kernel, the unknown function and the observed signal over Laguerre functions basis. The expansion results in a small system of linear equations with the matrix of the system being triangular and Toeplitz. The number $m$ of the terms in the expansion of the estimator is controlled via complexity penalty. The advantage of this methodology is that it leads to very fast computations, does not require exact knowledge of the kernel and produces no boundary effects due to extension at zero and cut-off at $T$. The technique leads to an estimator with the risk within a logarithmic factor of $m$ of the oracle risk under no assumptions on the model and within a constant factor of the oracle risk under mild assumptions. The methodology is illustrated by a finite sample simulation study which includes an example of the kernel obtained in the real life DCE experiments. Simulations confirm that the proposed technique is fast, efficient, accurate, usable from a practical point of view and competitive.
