Ballistic 2D-Imaging Through Tissue Scattering Walls

By adding an ultrafast time gate, the detectability of small tumors located inside the breast can be significantly improved. Time-resolved techniques such as the Kerr effect and holography, can be used to separate out the ballistic and snake components (least distorted image) from the diffusive component (most image information lost).
