Abstract
A novel rotating linear polarization imaging technique is developed to characterize the anisotropic properties of tissues. Differences of orthogonal linear polarization with different incident and detection polarization angles are fitted to an analytical function to retrieve a set of parameters. Experiments with different tissues and Monte Carlo simulations indicate that two of the parameters, G and φ3/2, are correlated to the anisotropic property and the orientation angle of the fibrous structure in the media. The technique can be used for clinical diagnosis.
