Abstract

The method of images is employed to insert the effects of the presence of a single lateral boundary on contrast functions previously derived for an infinite slab using a random walk model of photon transport. The predictions of the model for zero and extrapolated boundary conditions are compared with Monte Carlo (MC) simulations and with experimental results obtained using a homogenous phantom with tissue-like optical properties. As expected, the extrapolated boundary condition yields better agreement between the theoretical predictions and results obtained from MC and experiments. This indicates that the random walk model has potential as a forward model in iterative imaging schemes developed for optical tomography. (C) 1999 American Association of Physicists in Medicine.
