We introduce two filtering methods for near-field diffuse light diffraction tomography based on the angular spectrum representation. We then combine these filtering techniques with a new method to find the approximate depth of the image heterogeneities. Taken together these ideas improve the fidelity of our projection image reconstructions, provide an interesting three dimensional rendering of the reconstructed volume, and enable us to identify and classify image artifacts that need to be controlled better for tissue applications. The analysis is accomplished using data derived from numerical finite difference simulations with added noise.
