Abstract
Time resolved imaging involves detecting and measuring the flight times of photons diffusely transmitted through scattering media, and uses the photons with the shortest flight times to generate an image. Recent interest in time resolved methods has been motivated by the desire to develop medical imaging techniques which use harmless doses of visible or near-infrared radiation. In particular, a technique is sought which can provide a safe screening modality for the detection of breast disease. In this paper, the progress towards this objective is summarized, and the current prospects of developing a successful device are discussed.
