Paper Abstract

Polarization and correlation techniques of tissue structure visualization as well as 'direct' imaging by means of analysis of spatial distributions of the scattered light intensity are discussed by using the concept of statistics of effective optical paths. Monte Carlo simulation has allowed us to study the quality of the reconstructed imags for different schemes of image reconstruction. Absorbing half-plane embedded in the isotropic scattering slab has been used as a model inhomogeneity. Potentialities of relatively simple imaging techniques based on the application of continuous-wave laser sources are discussed.
