Abstract

An approach for the fast localization and detection of an absorbing inhomogeneity in a tissuelike scattering medium is presented. The probability of detection as a function of the size, location, and absorptive properties of the inhomogeneity is investigated. The detection sensitivity in relation to the source and detector location serves as a basis for instrument design.
