Abstract
This note describes a possible Monte Carlo procedure to deal with propagatiaon of optical radiation in a medium containing non-spherical particles, without the limit of isotropic orientation of their axes. It is based on the choice of two polarization states which does not change during the propagation in the turbid medium. An approximate procedure is considered for permitting the use of only two polarization states.
