An analytical theory integrating the Rayleigh-Debye-Gans theory with fractal aggregate theory (RDG-FA) for a better understanding of the optical properties of fractal-like tissue at a high-resolution scale is present. The calculated optical properties of tissue are consistent with the reported values. And the optical properties are related to the fractal dimension and the correlation length. In addition, the exponents of the inverse power law spectral dependence of scattering coefficient and reduced scattering coefficient are piecewise linearly depending on the fractal dimension, indicating that the exponents can serve as a tools for distinguishing the different tissue.
