Abstract

A method to determine the absorption and reduced scattering coefficients of rectangular parallelepiped highly scattering media from frequency-domain photon migration measurements is presented. An analytical model for photon diffusion propagation in the rectangular parallelepiped media is established using the method of images and extrapolated boundary conditions. This present technique has simplicity, accuracy, and rapid computability as compared with the Monte Carlo or finite element methods. The theoretical predictions are verified with experimental measurements using a white polyacetal resin, and the errors introduced by using the slab geometry for the optical property determination are identified.
