We have previously demonstrated that phosphorescence lifetime imaging (PLI) allows unbiased determination of absolute oxygen levels (pO2) in turbid homogeneously absorbing/scattering media. Herein we show computationally that tomographic PLI can perform equally well in heterogeneous environments relying only on surface measurements of phosphorescence.
