Determination of the optical parameters of tissues is a necessary element of laser medical diagnostics and therapy planning. In this work a mathematical model of the photon migration in tissues is considered in the assumption of the harmonic modulation of the incident laser light. The scattering coefficient and the photon's life time in virtually absorbed state can be calculated from the modulation coefficient and phase shift between incident and scattered light. Frequency-domain measurements were performed using two laser diodes (wavelengths 805 and 850 nm) as light-modulated sources and fiber-optic light guides for delivering the light to tissues surface and collecting the back scattering output. It is shown that measured difference in phase shift of scattered light intensity is proportional to difference in mean pathlength of photons at two wavelengths.
