Monte-Carlo simulation was used to study photon distribution in brain tissue, look ahead distance (LAD) empirical formula and theoretical model of near-infrared (NIR) neurosurgical manipulation microwound probe were obtained from the light distribution simulation. LAD empirical formula was verified by phantom and intralipid experiments. The experiment results are valuable for designing neurosurgical microwound probe.
