Results of single and multiple light scattering simulations for erythrocytes (RBC) modelled as spheroids are presented. The normal conditions as well as changes of osmotic pressure, hematocrit level and haemoglobin saturation were analysed. The computations were carried out with the use of the T-Matrix and Monte Carlo methods. The obtained results were compared with simulations based on spherical and cylindrical models. There were no significant qualitative differences between the cylindrical and spheroid models in case of multiple scattering. Somewhat larger differences between the spherical and the two other models were observed.
