This condition ensures that the extra phase accumulated by the incident wave due to the RI inhomogeneities is minimal, and the primary scattered wave is much weaker than the incident wave. We will first present our analysis of light scattering in the Born approximation for the full three-dimensional (3D) case, and subsequently consider the simpler cases of two-dimensional (2D) and onedimensional (1D) media in somewhat lesser detail. In all cases, we will start by outlining the general theory of the Born approximation in the respective geometry, and subsequently focus on a specific correlation function suited to that geometry to demonstrate the potential use of the formulation.

13 14 Introduction to Light Scattering Models In tissue optics, light propagation is conveniently quantified by three parameters: scattering coefficient ␮s , absorption coefficient ␮a , and anisotropy coefficient (also known as anisotropy factor) g, as well as their derivatives. 10) where ␳ N is the number density of scattering particles. Absorption coefficient is defined in a similar way through the absorption cross section of individual absorbing particles. ␮s has units of length. Along with the reduced scattering coefficient (see below), it is one of the two most widely used measures of how strong the scattering tissue is.

Note that for small klc , g → 0 and ␮s = ␮s . In this case, ␮s = ␭−4 , which is consistent with Rayleigh scattering. In most biological tissues, measurements indicate that g is large, implying that klc is large [8]. 4 Scattering coefficient ␮s as a function of index correlation length lc (both normalized by wavelength). Inset: mean free path kl s dependence. ) 10 4 39 Introduction to Light Scattering Models and m > 2, ␮s does not depend on wavelength at all. When klc is large and 1 < m < 2, ␮s = ␭2m−4 .
