Paper Abstract

Noncoherently detected transillurnination light waves only provide information about the absorption characteristics of a tissue subject. Coherent detection is capable of providing information about the dispersion characteristics. However a relationship exists between absorption and dispersion at optical frequencies. Both types of detection are seen to be mathematically equivalent. The difference lies in noise rejection capability and ease or difficulty of system realization. Models of absorption and dispersion properties are. also presented. 1.
