Chapter 1:
Optical Properties of Tissues with Strong (Multiple) Scattering
Abstract
This first chapter introduces the problem of light (laser beams) transport within strongly (multiply) scattering tissues, such as skin, breast, brain, and vessel wall. Basic principles and theoretical descriptions using radiation transfer theory or Monte Carlo (MC) simulation are considered. The propagation of short pulses and photon-density diffusion waves in scattering and absorbing media is analyzed, and the prospects of using these methods for tissue spectroscopy and tomography are discussed.
