The paper presents a method to make direct experimental comparisons between the imaging response of time of flight (TOF) pulsed and continuous wave transillumination techniques. The method uses an absorber to control the different components of scattered light, and uses a Laplace transform relationship to construct the effective TOF response window for the continuous wave system. This TOF response window is the same as that measured in a standard pulsed TOF experiment, thereby enabling comparisons to be made between the imaging response of pulsed and continuous methods of transillumination.
