Simultaneously reconstructed images of both absorption and scattering coefficients in optically heterogeneous media based on frequency-domain measurements are presented. The images are obtained from absolute measured data by use of a diffusion approximation to light propagation in tissue that is modeled with a finite-element method. Images that have different contrast levels are demonstrated.
