A method for fluorescence polarization difference imaging is demonstrated for enhancing the image quality of a luminous object embedded in a random medium. The polarization preservation of light propagating in the scattering medium leads to partially polarized light emission by a contrast-agent dye located inside the object. Subtraction of the images of the luminous object detected at two orthogonal polarization directions improves the image resolution compared with a conventional optical imaging approach.
