Paper Abstract

Based on tissue microscopic fluorescence properties and optical parameters, a three-layer bronchus optical mode was developed to calculate the excitation light distribution in the tissue and the fluorescence escape function from the tissue by Monte Carlo simulations. The contributions of each layer in the tissue to total autofluorescence signal observed at the tissue surface were also estimated. In addition, the fluorescence spectrum of the bronchial tissue was also modeled using the obtained tissue micro- spectroscopic properties. It is found that the theoretically modeled spectrum agrees well with the in vitro tissue fluorescence in the spectral range below 520 nm or above 600 nm.
