The absorption, scattering, and anisotropy coefficients of the fat emulsion lntralipid-10% have been measured at 457.9, 514.5, 632.8, and 1064 nm. The size and shape distributions of the scattering particles in lntralipid-10% were determined by transmission electron microscopy. Mie theory calculations performed by using the particle size distribution yielded values for the scattering and anisotropy coefficients from 400 to 1100 nm. The agreement with experimental values is better than 6%.
