Abstract
Calcification is a key marker that signals the possible presence of cancer in human breast. Calcium carbonate particles hidden in highly scattering media were optically imaged to demonstrate the feasibility of using time-resolved transillumination shadowgram approach for identifying calcification formation for breast cancer screening.
