Abstract

A hybrid Monte Carlo-diffusion model for measurements of optical properties of human tissue and skin for noninvasive monitoring was presented. The model combined the accuracy of Monte Carlo calculations based on radiative transport equation with the rapid computational efficiency of the diffusion model at larger distances. Experimental measurements performed on liquid tissue phantoms enabled the determination of the optical properties of the lower layer, top layer thickness and reduced scattering coefficient of the upper layer with reasonable accuracy.
