The Philips Optical Mammoscope Prototype is a versatile CW optical mammography apparatus with which fully 3D images of breast tissue can be obtained at several wavelengths. We present the properties of the machine, and show the first images obtained with it. We elaborate on the tissue parameter that can be quantitatively reconstructed from the measurements, and show some preliminary research into the natural variation of this parameter.
