Optix MX2 Time-Domain Optical Imager
Traditional in vivo optical molecular imaging systems grossly measure all of the photons that propagate through tissue without any temporal discrimination. This is known as the Continuous Wave (CW) technique. The method is limited to providing the attenuation or the total loss of photons in tissue. It cannot discriminate absorption events from scattering events, which impedes its capability to uncouple location (depth) from concentration in the image.
