Paper Abstract

Biological tissue characterization using optical imaging techniques often focus on optical property quantification, a process that relies on a diffuse or sub-diffuse light transport model. Assumptions associated with each light transport model reduce the applicability and increase the computational and/or experimental complexity of the techniques. Scattering orientation index and texture metrics quantified for human breast tissues are free of light transport assumptions and were quantified using the demodulated reflectance from wide-field structured light imaging. This work suggests that wide-field tissue diagnostics might be possible without model-based optical property quantification and instead using assumption-free scatter orientation and textural information.
