Fluorescent optical imaging of tumors deep within tissue depends on specific binding of antibodies to the tumors' surface markers. These fluorescent antibodies propagating in the vicinity of the tumor can be attached to and (or) diffused away from it. We illustrate application of a new tool, based on the random-walk theory in turbid media, for extracting the pharmacokinetics of these fluorescent antibodies by data deconvolution, excluding the effect of upper turbid tissue layers.
