Paper Abstract

In this article we propose an approach to improve the Monte Carlo simulation accuracy by implementing a full photon path integration simulation in a non-voxelized complex three-dimensional heterogeneous model. Mouse body shape, organs optical heterogeneities and fluorophore distribution are simulated by using boundary surface elements and basic analytical shapes. In addition, external and internal surface roughness and refractive index mismatch for complex angular objects are also considered and results are briefly compared with time sampled space voxelized Monte Carlo code, in order to illustrate the impact of these improvements on the simulation results.
