Computed optical tomography reconstructs a 2-D planar cross-sectional map of the absorption from line integrals of the absorption along a large number of rays traversing the image field. It offers accurate and absolute spatially resolved absorption measurements with good time resolution. Tomography does not require access outside the plane of interest and remains quantitative even in optically thick systems.
