Paper Abstract

We have developed a stochastic photon transport model in multilayer skin tissue in an effort to study normal and bruised skins. The model uses a detailed seven layer skin approximation allowing more biologically relevant input than previous models using one or three layers. Our model is improved with clinically obtained reactance spectra in an effort to develop time correlations of chromophore concentrations in developing bruises. This combination of modeling and spectroscopic measurements provides a new tool for detailed, non-invasive studies of human skin tissue.
