We propose a new method imaging through scattering media. An object hidden between two biological tissues (chicken breast) is reconstructed from any speckled images obtained from the output of a multichannel optical imaging system. The effect of multiple imaging is achieved with a microlens array. Each lens is the array projects a different speckled image onto a digital camera. The set of speckled images from the entire array is first shifted to a common center and then accumulated into a single average picture.
