Overcoming light scattering: Single-pixel optical system uses compressive sensing to see deeper inside tissue

Optical imaging methods are rapidly becoming essential tools in biomedical science because they’re noninvasive, fast, cost-efficient and pose no health risks since they don’t use ionizing radiation. These methods could become even more valuable if researchers could find a way for optical light to penetrate all the way through the body’s tissues. With today’s technology, even passing through a fraction of an inch of skin is enough to scatter the light and scramble the image.
