Abstract

A perturbation theory that offers a book-keeping method for evaluating a diffuse-photon computed tomography of a turbid medium is presented. The tomography is based on the measurement of the diffusively scattered photons that emerge from the surface of the medium. This analysis enables quantitative comparison of the effectiveness of various illumination-detection arrangements and the reconstruction algorithms.
