The overwhelming scatter which occurs when optical radiation propagates through tissue severely limits the ability to image internal structure using measurements of transmitted intensity. A broad range of methods has been proposed during the past decade or so in order to improve imaging performance. Direct methods involve isolating an unscattered or least-scattered component of transmitted scattered light. Indirect methods generally involve measuring some characteristic of the temporal… CONTINUE READING
