Abstract

Based on a previous theory of diffuse photon density waves by Furutsu [J. Opt. Soc. Am. A 15, 1371 (1998)], several sets of figures are prepared to detect a fixed scatterer (object) embedded in a turbid layer, such as a tumor in tissue, with a source and a detector placed independently along the boundaries on different sides. The relative total intensity of the wave is introduced such that it is reduced to 1 in the case of no scatterer and usually less than that, owing to a shadowing by the scatterer. Sets of curves are presented to demonstrate shadow images of the scatterer observed along the layer boundaries depending on the scatterer’s location.
