Inverse Scattering Results
We discuss the results obtained using the inversion and refraction corrected reflection (RFCR) algorithms described in the companion paper in these proceedings. We show images for three patients created with these algorithms, from data collected with our clinical device. We discuss their potential clinical relevance, and their relationship to other, more conventional imaging modalities.
