The effective attenuation coefficient of piglet lung was measured in vitro at 632.8 nm. Interstial fibres with isotropic tips were used to measure the fluence rate as a function of the distance from an isotropic light source. In vitro measurements at 632.8 nm on a lung that was insufflated with oxygen from 50 to 150 ml showed that the effective attenuation coefficient decreases as a function of the volume of air in the lung (at 50 ml /Jeff = 0.297 + 0.011 mnf1, at 100 ml lice 0.150 ± 0.007 mm-1, and at 150 ml /Jeff= 0.1136 + 0.015 mm-1). A single in vitro measurement at 790 nm at an insufflated lung volume of 100 ml gave a comparable result (ii ie = 0.175 + 0.004 mm-1). A ff decrease in effective attenuation coefficient with an ncrease in lung volume was explained by Mie-theory. The effective attenuation coefficient, calculated with 11, and g from Mie-theory, showed a deviation < 22% from the measured in vitro values.
