Abstract

In tissue optics, the assumption that blood is homogeneously distributed in tissue can give rise to miscalculations because blood is found only in blood vessels. In our paper randomly oriented blood vessels are treated as particles for which we obtained apparent absorption and scattering coefficients by means of the Monte Carlo method. Apart from this correction for the contribution of blood properties in tissue, a correction for the contribution of the surrounding tissue proved to be needed as well. The results found with our model were compared with available results from the literature.
