22 November 2000 Accelerated Monte Carlo models to simulate fluorescence of layered tissue
Author Affiliations +
Time-efficient Monte Carlo models for fluorescence from layered tissue were developed. The computation time is reduced significantly by recognizing symmetry properties of the problem, and by reversing computation of the photon paths for the fluorescence light. Further reduction is obtained by using a white Monte Carlo approach, which enables scaling of the results to the desired optical properties after the simulation. The methods reduce computation time more than two orders of magnitude compared with conventional Monte Carlo code.
