Biological tissue scatters light mainly in the forward direction where the scattering phase function has a narrow peak. This peak makes it difficult to solve the radiative transport equation. However, it is just for forward-peaked scattering that the Fokker-Planck equation provides a good approximation, and it is easier to solve than the transport equation. Furthermore, the modification of the Fokker-Planck equation by Leakeas and Larsen provides an even better approximation and is also easier… CONTINUE READING
