Paper Abstract

The resolution power of photon tomography is estimated by calculating the root-mean-square deviation of the photon trajectory from its mean path. Statistical simulation is performed using exact values of the migration probability density. To estimate this quantity we calculate the root- mean-square deviation of photon trajectories from the mean path, the initial and final space-time points of trajectory being fixed. We apply the Monte-Carlo procedure in order to calculate the photon-travel deviation variance. In this paper we confine ourselves to infinite isotropically scattering media.
