  • Patent number: 5213105
    Abstract: Arrangements are disclosed for producing images based upon diffusional wave theory and frequency domain analysis. A medium to be imaged is illuminated with amplitude modulated radiation, and diffusional radiation transmitted or reflected by the medium is detected at a plurality of detection locations, as by a television camera. The phase and also the amplitude demodulation of the amplitude modulated diffusional radiation is detected at each detection location. A relative phase image and also a demodulation amplitude image of the medium are then generated from respectively the detected relative phase values and the detected demodulation amplitudes of the diffusional radiation at the plurality of locations. The present invention is particularly suited for medical applications for generating images of internal anatomical details of the body by using a near infrared amplitude modulated source for illumination of the body.
