In this paper, diffuse reflectance hyperspectral images of a light beam propagating through a semi-infinite homogeneous layer were simulated by a modified version of the open source Monte Carlo (MC) for multi-layered tissues. Subsequently, the optical properties in terms of absorption and reduced scattering coefficients were extracted from the simulated hyperspectral images by an inverse MC model based on a criterion function that exploits the spatially resolved information of hyperspectral images. The method was validated on real hyperspectral images of turbid phantoms with exactly defined optical properties.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
