Abstract

A Monte Carlo procedure has been developed to study photon migration through highly scattering nonhomogeneous media. When two scaling relationships are used, the temporal response when scattering or absorbing inhomogeneities are introduced can be evaluated in a short time from the results of only one simulation carried out for the homogeneous medium. Examples of applications to the imaging of defects embedded into a diffusing slab, a model usually used for optical mammography, are given. Comparisons with experimental results show the correctness of the results obtained.
