Paper Abstract

For the study of light distribution in living tissue, a multi-layer simulation model of the skin was developed. This model assumes realistic anatomical topography data and includes different material parameters of the individual layers such as relative blood volume, absorption coefficient, scattering coefficient, and anisotropy scattering factors. The photon tracks were calculated with the Monte-Carlo-method. Preliminary results show the detectability of alien structures directly beneath the skin surface and in depths of up to several mm.
