The use of diffuse photon density waves (DPDW) at multiple modulation frequencies is a significant tool for Diffuse Optical Tomography (DOT). Use of higher frequencies offers higher contrast between scattering and absorbing objects and allows higher resolution to be achieved. Here we focus on the optimal use of frequencies in simultaneously resolving absorbing and scattering objects using simulated data.
