Abstract
Monte Carlo modeling of light transport in multi-layered tissues (MCML) has been used for simulating light transport in human skin layers. The Monte Carlo simulations can perform ray tracing of light on the basis of optical energy. A hybrid simulator combining MCML with Mie scattering theory (HMCS) has been developed in this study to analyze light propagating in human skin on the amplitude basis. The HMCS and MCML are compared in terms of diffused light intensity profile in the skin surface and photon fluence in the penetration for the three-layered model of skin tissue.
