Paper Abstract

Using Monte Carlo simulations we demonstrate that a realistic absorption inhomogeneity embedded in a diffusive medium can be effectively mimicked by a small black object of a proper volume (Equivalence Relation). Applying this concept we propose the construction of simple and well reproducible inhomogeneous phantoms.
