Paper Abstract

Measurements of optical properties of biological tissues are necessary to develop optical diagnostic instruments. Although various methods to measure the optical properties of biological tissue have been proposed, very few measurements have been carried out in vivo because of their difficulties. We are developing a new method to obtain the optical properties in vivo using time-resolved measurement system. This new method determines the optical properties by comparing the experimental results of time-resolved measurement with the results of a series of Monte Carlo simulation using known optical properties.
