Abstract
In this study, we have chosen to implement a Monte Carlo simulation of an OCT system in order to investigate elements of the underlying physics of OCT images. Of particular interest is the signal decay primarily attributable to optical scattering, refractive index variations, including index matching, and how these compare with the influence of layer anisotropy.
