Abstract

Lateral light-distribution images of biologic tissues were used to study the tissues’ optical characteristics. Monte Carlo simulation with the same conditions was performed to simulate the light distribution for comparison. Simulation results showed that the lateral light distribution was similar to the internal light distribution in biologic tissue. The direction of muscle fibers and the temperature both affect the near-field light distribution in tissue. The lateral view distribution can be both measured and simulated to study photon migration in tissue. It can also be used to estimate or verify the optical coefficients of tissue.
