Paper Abstract

We present derivation of the temporal correlation transfer equation (CTE) for multiply scattered light modulated by an ultrasound pulse. The equation can be used to obtain the time-varying specific intensity of light produced by a pulsed and nonuniform ultrasound field in optically scattering media that have a heterogeneous distribution of optical parameters. We also develop a Monte Carlo algorithm that can simulate the spatial distribution of the time-dependent power spectrum density of light modulated by a focused ultrasound pulse in optically scattering media with heterogeneous distributions of optically scattering and absorbing objects. Derivation is based on the ladder diagram approximation of the Bethe-Salpeter equation that assumes moderate ultrasound pressures. We expect these results to be applicable to a wide spectrum of conditions in the ultrasound-modulated optical tomography of soft biological tissues.
