    Abstract

    The applicability of diffusion theory for the determination of tissue optical properties from time resolved reflectance spectroscopy was investigated. Monte Carlo simulations, which describe the photon migration with high accuracy, were compared to analytical expression found from diffusion theory. Different boundary conditions for the air tissue interface were assumed and the influence of the choice of the boundary conditions on the accuracy of the findings for the optical parameters was determined.
