A medical imager, primarily for use in oral and dental applications. The imager has a source for providing a plurality of collimated beams of non-ionising radiation, in particular near-infrared light, and a plurality of correlated detectors. Each detector is arranged to receive unscattered light from one or part of one of said collimated beams and scattered light from one or more other beams. The imager further comprises means for using both the unscattered and scattered light to form an image.
