Abstract

We introduce a new Monte Carlo (MC) method for simulating optical coherence tomography (OCT) images of complex multilayered turbid scattering media. We demonstrate, for the first time of our knowledge, the use of a MC technique to imitate two-dimensional polarization-sensitive OCT images with nonplanar boundaries of layers in the medium like a human skin. The simulation of polarized low-coherent optical radiation is based on the vector approach generalized from the iterative procedure of the solution of Bethe–Saltpeter equation. The performances of the developed method are demonstrated both for conventional and polarization-sensitive OCT modalities.
