BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Surface laser irradiation of tissue often produces a fluence rate that varies only with depth. Modeling of laser-induced fluorescence involves an expression for the fraction of fluorescence emitted per unit depth that escapes from the medium. We present accurate expressions for fluence rate and escape function for the one-dimensional case based upon Monte Carlo simulation results. STUDY DESIGN/MATERIAL AND METHODS Expressions were proposed for fluence rate, phi (z)/E0… CONTINUE READING
