Abstract

The scattering and absorption of light by randomly oriented, discretely scattering, red blood cells imbedded in a homogeneous plasma medium can be described by the P1 approximation to the one-speed transport equation, where the cells have the dual role of anisotropic sources for first scattering events and of scattering and absorption sites for subsequent scattering events. Equations for diffuse reflectance defined for a finite size receiver in the plane of a normally incident cylindrical photon beam are derived and compared with experimental data to fundamentally justify the basic sending–receiving charactreristics of a fiber optic catheter model. A model of the fiber optic catheter used for the spectrophotometric measurement of oxygen content in blood is developed from the theory and compared with experimental results to further substantiate the theoretical approach.
