In this paper a feasibility study of the depth sensitivity for a patent-registered method is described. To visualize tomographic and topographic properties of tissue by detection of diffusely reflected photons, it is fundamental for this method to get information from the depth of the examination object. The experimental setup as well as the workflow for investigating the experimentally achievable depth sensitivity of the newly approach is described in this paper. In this study a well-established liquid tissue phantom was used to detect inhomogeneous structures in the depth of the object.
