We image the spatial structure of an optically inhomogeneous absorbing medium using multiply scattered light in the diffusive limit. We infer structure by using a solution of the inverse scattering problem that is valid to first order in the optical absorption. These results on imaging with diffusive light extend recent work on light scattering probes of colloids, foams, and biological tissues.
