Paper Abstract

Monte Carlo method is employed to simulate optical path-length- resolved reflectance from samples in optical coherence tomography. Four different models are often used in such simulations to treat the scattering and absorption process. This paper presents a detailed probability analysis on the equivalence of the four different models under certain conditions. We found that the photon's statistical contributions after the same times of scattering are equal in these four models.
