The principles of time-integrated holography (TIH) as applied to optical tomography are presented. When a light scattering medium is transilluminated , the unique property of holography to operate on the complex amplitude of the emerging wave can be exploited to introduce a selective relationship between the impinging and the emerging wave-fronts and to image objects obscured by the medium.
