Author Affiliations +
The reflectance spectra of the human skin in visible and near- infrared spectral region have been calculated using Monte Carlo technique, and the specular reflection on the surface takes into account. The skin is represented as a complex inhomogeneous multi-layered highly scattering and absorbing medium. The model of the skin takes into account variations of spatial distribution of blood vessels, various level of blood oxygen saturation, volume fraction of water, oxy- and deoxy-hemoglobin and melanin content. Comparison of the results of simulation and experimental results made in vivo are presented. The optical properties of the skin tissues are discussed.
