Paper Abstract

A series of simulations have been performed in order to investigate the feasibility of constructing a time-of-flight breast imaging system capable of achieving clinically useful resolution using state-of-the-art picosecond laser pulse generation and detection technology. Simulated images are presented which demonstrate the likely performance of such a system, based on the attenuation and scattering characteristics of breast tissue measured in the laboratory.
