We describe the simulation results of a novel method of optical tissue diagnostics employing ballistic photons. They are selected by detecting them in an interferometric setup, further using heterodyning to increase the signal size. Three strategically placed apertures select the beam diameter for spatial resolution in scanning, and the angle within which the partially scattered photons might be collected. We model inclusion inside a bone-like object as a tree-layer tissue that includes the skin, the muscle, and the bone.
