Paper Abstract

We analyzed measured and simulated phantom data for absorption and reduced scattering coefficients of embedded spherical inhomogeneities using various analytical models, based on diffusion theory. The model of diffraction of photon density waves was found to be superior to the empirical, non-linear perturbation model (Pade approximants) whereas linear perturbation theory considerably underestimates absorption in the range of absorption coefficients and spherical volumes most relevant to tumors detected by optical mammography.
