Paper Abstract

Three-dimensional (3D) localization of human cancerous prostate tissue embedded in normal prostate tissue was demonstrated and characterized using backscattering scanning polarization imaging and independent component analysis (ICA). Backscattering two-dimensional (2D) images of a tissue sample illuminated with a raster scanning laser beam were recorded using a CCD camera to obtain multiple angular views of the target embedded inside the tissue medium. The 3D location of the object was retrieved by matching the leading Independent Component(s) of intensity distribution of images to the numerical propagation of the target to the surface of the tissue medium.
