Abstract
The measurement of tissue optical properties is often required for proper design of therapeutic or diagnostic uses of light in medicine. The ability of light to spread into a tissue and the rate of light absorption by the tissue are two related but distinct processes. The two independent optical parameters which affect these processes are absorption and scattering. To understand light propagation, two independent optical measurements must be made. In this paper, we discuss the measurements of total diffuse reflectance and lateral spread of light in response to a point source of irradiance. In this paper, we call this technique "video reflectometry".
