In vivo optical imaging of biological tissue can provide valuable diagnostic information such as the detection of physiological or morphological changes over time. However biological tissue is a strongly scattering medium which limits the depth to which imaging is possible and reduces contrast and resolution.
However the ability to computationally model the propagation of light in such strongly scattering media allows a variety of techniques to overcome the limitations imposed by scattering to be theoretically evaluated.
