Abstract
Light propagation in multi-layered tissues was studied theoretically and experimentally on a rabbit thigh and on human forearms. Theoretical investigations were based on a special solution of the diffusion equation considering layered materials or on Monte Carlo simulations. The spatially resolved reflectance of a small diameter laser beam (633 or 751 nm) incident on the tissue was measured in vivo with a CCD-camera based system previously tested with homogeneous tissue simulating phantoms. The optical coefficients were determined either by non-linear regressions to a solution of the diffusion equation or to Monte Carlo simulations. We fitted up to four independent parameters to describe the spatially resolved reflectance from two- and three-layered tissues.
