Paper Abstract

Imaging of sub-millimeter phantoms in highly scauering diffusive media such as breast tissues was achieved using a picosecond optical Kerr gate imaging method. It was shown that the ballislic and snake parts of the gated transmitted light carried the least distorted image information with the highest spatial resolution and signal to noise ratio. The ultrafast time shutter rejected the late-arriving diffusive scattering light which blurred the image thus allowing us to see through an "opaque" scattering wall.
