Abstract
The refractive index matching of components of highly scattering tissue has a strong influence on its transmittance and reflectance what can be considered as a new tool for imaging within relatively thick tissues. We present experimental data on various solutions, gels and oils influence on optical properties of in vivo human eye and in vivo human skin. The dynamics of tissue optical properties depending on matter diffusion rate within tissue is studied. The possible application of refractive index matching effect for diffusing-photon imaging is discussed.
