Paper Abstract

Experimental study and computer modeling of light propagation in a turbid media with different content of scattering particles were done. Latex phantoms as a model of living tissue have been investigated. Experimental results have shown saturation of transmittance and reflectance at selected wavelengths with concentration. These saturation effects are explained by changes of packing factor of scatterers and should be included in description of living tissue optical property changes due to homeostasis.
