(a) Reflectance contrast in absorption and scattering covering a typical range of brain optical properties. (b) The frequency-dependent sensitivity to absorption (black line) and scattering (gray line), respectively. Reflectance at fx = 0.26 mm−1 is 24 times more sensitive to scattering contrast compared to that of absorption.
