Abstract

A brief introduction to time-resolved and steady-state Monte Carlo modeling is presented. The methods of time-resolved and steady-state Monte Carlo simulations of photon trajectories within a tissue are presented. An example simulation using Monte Carlo Multi-Layered (mcml) demonstrates the spatial distributions of power deposition and fluence rate within a layered tissue with different optical properties (absorption, reduced scattering) in each layer.
