We present a method to visualize 3D objects in scattering media using the axially distributed sensing method. The scattered elemental images of the 3D objects in scattering media are obtained by moving the camera along the common optical axis. To reduce the scattering effect of the recorded elemental images, a statistical image processing algorithm is applied to the scattering elemental images and the estimated elemental images with the reduced scattering effects are obtained. The estimated elemental images of the objects are used to visualize the 3D scene using the computational reconstruction algorithm based on ray back-projection. We present preliminary experimental results to illustrate how the scattering effects may be reduced by the proposed method.
