12 April 1995 Measurements of blood parameters in multiple scattering

Possibilities to retrieve the erythrocyte size distribution and other parameters of the whole blood from the angular distribution of multiple scattered light are discussed. Experimental measurements of the small- angular distributions of laser radiation scattered in the blood layers of various optical depths and their interpretation are presented. The narrow peak of the coherent backward scattering of laser radiation for the whole blood is first observed. Its application to retrieval of blood parameters is discussed.
