Paper Abstract

Measurements of the tissue optical parameters and the theoretical modeling of the light propagation in biological tissues is very important for real time laser treatment dosimetry and non- invasive diagnosis. An integrating sphere based technique was used to determine the tissue optical properties. Soft tissue - like phantoms were irradiated with visible lasers and the optical parameters were compared with results calculated from the Beer's law model of light propagation and the Kubelka - Munk simulation.
