Progress Toward Optical Mammography: Imaging in Dense Scattering Media Using Time–Independent Optical Sources

J. Chang et al. (1994)


Numerical studies examining the ability to reconstruct the interior properties of dense scattering media, using optical sources and analyzing surface measurements, are described. The quality of the images obtained depended on the medium, constraints, view angle, and algorithm. All algorithms produced precise location with minimal artifact from the simulation data. Restricting the view angle produced a degradation in image quality, but clearly recognizable images were obtained.
