Abstract
The distribution of light in tissues can be modeled using Monte Carlo simulations. Analytic expressions, however, provide both speed and the ability to derive subsequent analytic expressions. This paper attempts to distill the lessons of Monte Carlo simulations into analytic descriptions that are simple and rapid. Monte Carlo simulations in homogeneous tissue with cylindrically symmetric geometries are translated into simple expressions based on ellipses. Such an ellipsoidal approximation provides a convenient analytic expression for internal fluence rate distributions, F(r,z).
