Paper Abstract

In this paper we discuss the application of higher-order transport approximations using finite element-spherical harmonics methods (FE-PN) to multidimensional photon propagation problems. The combined methodology offers fast and accurate modeling of photon propagation in multidimensional diffusive and non-diffusive media. This is of great importance to the practical solution of the inverse scattering problems which characterize optical tomography.
