Abstract
The Diffuse Photon Density Wave (DPDW) methodology is widely used in a number of biomedical applications. Here we present results of Monte Carlo simulations that employ an effective numerical procedure, based upon a description of radiative transfer in terms of the Bethe-Salpeter equation, and compare them with measurements from Intralipid aqueous solutions. In our scheme every act of scattering contributes to the signal. We find the Monte Carlo simulations and measurements to be in a very good agreement for a wide range of source –detector separations.
