Measuring the scattering parameters of tissues from quantitative phase imaging of thin slices

Opt Lett. 2011 Jun 15;36(12):2281-3. doi: 10.1364/OL.36.002281.


We employed the scattering-phase theorem recently derived in our laboratory to extract tissue scattering properties from quantitative phase images. Using tissue path-length maps that contain nanoscale information about the tissue, the scattering mean free path l(s) and anisotropy factor g were measured in a spatially resolved manner.
