The recently introduced time-resolved technique for enhanced medical transillumination imaging has been demonstrated for the important case of a diode laser transmitter. This type of gated-viewing technique utilizes early received light only to reject multiply scattered, delayed light, normally blurring the image. Human breast-cancer detection is demonstrated in vitro, and the observations are explained by using theoretical modeling and tissue phantom experiments.
