The sparse recovery methods utilize the p-norm based regularization in the estimation problem with 0 ≤ p ≤ 1. These methods have a better utility when the number of independent measurements are limited in nature, which is a typical case for diffuse optical tomographic image reconstruction problem. These sparse recovery methods, along with an approximation to utilise the 0-norm, have been deployed for the reconstruction of diffuse optical images. Their performance was compared systematically
