AbstractOptical tomography is acknowledged as an economic and harmless probing technique for medical applications. Recent research tends to show that the use of long term photons, which have travelled a long time in the whole sample to be probed, carry more information in the image reconstruction process. Numerical simulations based on short-pulsed laser beam interaction with non-homogeneous matter are presented. The aim is to emphasize the effect of reflective boundary conditions since reflection enforces photons to stay for a longer period of time in the phantom. It is found that the quality of reconstruction is better when the boundaries are reflecting.
