Optical scattering properties of soft tissue: a discrete particle model.

Abstract

We introduce a micro-optical model of soft biological tissue thatpermits numerical computation of the absolute magnitudes of itsscattering coefficients. A key assumption of the model is that therefractive-index variations caused by microscopic tissue elements canbe treated as particles with sizes distributed according to a skewedlog-normal distribution… (More)
