Abstract
The optical coefficients (μs, μa, μ's and g)of human cancerous and normal prostate tissues were investigated and compared in the spectral range of 750nm - 860 nm. The fractal dimensional parameters including fractal dimension (Df), cutoff diameter (dmax) and the most efficient diameter (dm) between the cancerous and normal prostate tissues were determined based on the extinction and diffusion reflection intensity measurements and the determination ofμs, μa, μ's and g. The results are in good agreement with prostate cancer evolution defined by Gleason Grades. The difference of fractal dimensional parameters and optic
