Abstract

We propose a new approach to optical diffusion tomography that incorporates two orthogonal projections. All the data obtained in a double projection measurement are treated simultaneously. The second projection improves image quality due to the fact that the depth and transverse directions are interchanged. An image reconstruction algorithm is derived and illustrated with simulations. It is shown that the spatial resolution of images improves by a factor of 4–5 due to the second projection.
