Abstract

We present a detailed experimental study concerning quantitative optical property reconstruction of heterogeneous turbid media by use of absolute dc data only. We performed experiments by using tissuelike phantoms in both single-target and multitarget configurations in which variations in target size and optical contrast with the background were explored. Our results show that both scattering and absorption images can be reconstructed quantitatively by use of dc data only, whereas it was impossible to obtain such quantitative information in previously reported studies. We believe that this improvement is primarily a result of the realization of a novel data preprocessing/optimization scheme for accurately determining several critical parameters needed for reconstruction. The use of this data preprocessing/optimization scheme also eliminates the calibration reference measurement previously required for reconstruction. Experimental confirmation of this scheme is given in detail.
