Paper Abstract

Tissue strongly scatters light. Therefore, virtually all techniques for probing tissue with light are dependent on the scattering interactions of light with tissue. In particular, noninvasive optical methods for determining tissue morphology are dependent on light scattering. A fundamental understanding of what cellular features scatter light and of how changes internal cellular structures affect the measurement of light transport are needed. In this work, we describe some of the recent progress made towards understanding the basic mechanisms of light scattering in tissue.
