Abstract

This study utilizes experimentally validated Monte Carlo simulations to identify a mathematical formulation of the reflectance intensity collected by a single fiber probe expressed in terms of the reduced scattering coefficient ( μ s ), fiber diameter d fiber , and a property of the first two moments of the scattering phase function (γ). This model is then utilized to accurately obtain wavelength-dependent estimates of μ s ( λ ) and γ ( λ ) from multiple single fiber spectral measurements of a turbid medium obtained with different diameters. This method returns accurate descriptions (mean residual < 3 % ) of both μ s and γ across the biologically relevant range.
