Abstract

The modeling of the complex tissue optics of a light-scattering tissue with imbedded objects of irregular shape with variable absorption and scattering properties can be accomplished with a relatively simple computation based on perturbation theory. The general method has been described. This report describes the specifics of how to implement the method for steady-state light distributions and adds an air/tissue boundary of irregular shape.
