Abstract

We introduce a technique called dual-spatial integration (DSI) that is used to isolate and enhance inclusions that differ only by their longitudinal placement within a scattering medium. DSI uses three different source–detector configurations to section a scattering medium into three longitudinal zones. This sectioning permits the extraction of structures close to surfaces and the enhancement of those structures located in the central part of the medium. Both the simulation and the experimental results indicate that DSI has potential interest for applications in biomedical imaging such as optical mammography.
