Paper Abstract

In biological suspensions light scattering is done mainly by the contribution of the suspended cells. A main challenge in describing light diffusion is to produce an analytical expression that accurately expresses the multiple light scattering anisotropy. The Henyey-Greenstein phase function embedded in the RWMCS code was used to describe single scattering on Red Blood Cells in suspension. The results of the simulation, containing multiple light scattering, are used to verify the predictions of two new effective phase function recently published. The results show a good agreement in the small RBC concentration range.
