This work presents an analytical approach for the solution of the tissue diffusion equation based on the bound- ary measurements. We consider a bioluminescent point source in both homogeneous and heterogeneous circular turbid media. The point source is described by the Dirac delta function. Analytical expressions for the strength and position of the point source are obtained introducing boundary measurements and then applying appropriate boundary conditions. In addition, numerical simulations are performed for the position of the source. Calculations show that that the analytical results are in a good accordance with the numerical results.
