This paper considers the image transfer through a randomly inhomogeneous absorbing medium with lens properties. The optical transfer function of the medium is studied taking into account the effect of the initial beam coherence, complex dielectric constant fluctuations and lens properties of the medium, as well as the role of a receiver. An analytical equation is derived for the optical transfer function under the assumption that a symmetrical refraction channel with fluctuating complex dielectric constant is formed in the medium.
