A scattering matrix is formed using a discrete approximation of the exact scattering relation between observed fields and the contrast profile of a three-dimensional numerical breast phantom. The numerical regime allows observation of the exact fields over the imaging volume and the subsequent analysis of the information content of the scattering data. A… CONTINUE READING
