Paper Abstract

In last years time-resolved transillumination seems to be particularly interesting for human tissue imaging. In spite of the huge quantity of work already done in this field, it seems still necessary to investigate in a systematic way the interdependence among the basic image parameters: spatial resolution, contrast and noise. This work reports the preliminary results of such a study using a Ti:Sa laser and a streak camera. The investigated samples have been Intralipid solutions with an object test introduced in them. Measurements on spatial resolution have been performed by measuring edge response function and the line spread and modulation transfer functions have been calculated. Moreover noise pattern and contrast have been evaluated.
