Abstract
We introduce a new Monte-Carlo technique to estimate the radiance distribution in a medium according to the radiative transport equation (RTE). We demonstrate how to form gradients of the forward model, and thus how to employ this technique as part of the inverse problem in Diffuse Optical Tomography (DOT). Use of the RTE over the more typical application of the diffusion approximation permits accurate modelling in the case of short source-detector separation and regions of low scattering, in addition to providing time-domain information without extra computational effort over continuous-wave solutions.
