A novel high-speed fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM) analysis method based on artificial neural networks (ANN) has been proposed. In terms of image generation, the proposed ANN-FLIM method does not require iterative searching procedures or initial conditions, and it can generate lifetime images at least 180-fold faster than conventional least squares curve-fitting software tools. The advantages of ANN-FLIM were demonstrated on both synthesized and experimental data, showing that it has great potential to fuel current revolutions in rapid FLIM technologies.
