Paper Abstract

In the study of epithelial tissues and superficial cancers, it is often important to determine the optical properties of small volumes of tissue, and at varying depths. A model that relates the reflectance spectrum to the optical properties of a turbid medium at small source-detector separations is developed based on Monte Carlo simulations and experiments in tissue phantoms. Four fiber probes are analyzed, for which each fiber probe presents a different tilt angle. Preliminary results show good correlation between known optical properties in tissue phantoms, and the measured optical properties.
