Abstract
Light transport is currently used clinically both as a therapeutic tool and as a diagnostic tool. A concern in all these cases is the difficulty of knowing which regions of the tissues are sufficiently illuminated for therapeutic results, or from which regions the collected fluorescence was emitted. Development of optical models that explain the observed scattering properties of soft biological tissues is of considerable interest. Such modeling can give how the scattering properties are influenced by the numbers, sizes and arrangements of the tissue structure. In this article we give a brief overview of the laser light transport in tissue and also discuss some representative applications of tissue optics for biomedical applications.
