Abstract

The traditional diffusion theory, often used for isotropic sources, becomes inaccurate at short source-detector spacings and cannot be applied to media with large absorption or with small scattering strengths. We show that for any type of source anisotropy, a Green's-function-based procedure can remove these limitations. The accuracy of the new approach is examined through a comparison with the numerical solution to the radiative transfer equation.
