Paper Abstract

We develop a Monte Carlo model for optical coherence signal simulation and providing accurate and high resolution information on the birefringence properties of the connective tissues. To understand the polarized sensitive optical coherence tomography imaging mechanism the Monte Carlo technique is generalized for simulation of polarized low-coherent back-scattering of optical radiation scattered within the randomly inhomogeneous turbid medium like the connective tissues. The results of simulation demonstrate a good agreement both with the theoretical and experimental predictions.
