Abstract

Ultrasound tagging of light provides a unique way to probe photon density inside turbid media. We show that this technique allows one to probe the well-known banana-shaped photon density noninvasively, giving rise to a new tool for modeling diffusive photon propagation. Moreover, we show that this technique is quantitative and allows one to get a precise determination of the absorbing constituents inside the turbid medium.
