Author Affiliations +
In recent years the interest in the determination of optical properties of layered tissue structure has resurfaced. Applications include, for example, studies on layered skin tissue and underlying muscles, imaging of the brain underneath layers of skin, skull, and meninges, and imaging of the fetal head in utero beneath the layered structures of the maternal abdomen. In this work we approach the problem of layered structures in the framework of model-based iterative image reconstruction schemes. These schemes are currently developed to determine the optical properties inside tissue from measurement on the surface. If applied to layered structure these techniques yield substantial improvements over currently available semi-analytical approaches.
