Paper Abstract

Monte Carlo simulations have been employed to examine several different techniques proposed for the improved detection of scattering inhomogeneities in turbid media. Scaling formulas were used to determine the effect of a scattering inhomogeneity starting from a set of trajectories evaluated for a homogeneous medium. In a relatively short time it was possible to vary both the dimension and the optical properties of the inhomogeneity and to evaluate the temporal point spread functions (TPSFs) for a large number of positions. Using the derived TPSFs, a comparison was performed of the images acquired using techniques based on CW, time domain, and frequency domain measurements.
