Recent years have brought about exciting new developments in computerized tomography. In particular, a novel, very promising approach to the creation of diagnostic techniques consists in combining different imaging modalities, in order to take advantage of their individual strengths. Perhaps the most successful example of such a combination is the thermoacoustic tomography (TAT) (also called photoacoustic tomography and optoacoustic tomography and abbreviated as TCT, PAT, or OAT) [1-8].
