Monte Carlo Simulation of Colon Tissue Autofluorescence Spectrum
Huihua Kenny Chiang,
We have developed a Monte Carlo simulation method for estimating the autofluorescence spectra of colon tissues with different mucosa and submucosa layer thickness. The simulated excitation light wavelength is at 330 nm wavelength and the fluorescence emission spectrum is from 370 nm to 550 nm. Through the simulation process, we have obtained better understanding of the optical properties of the colon tissues, as well as the relationship between the fluorescence spectrum and the development of adenoma in different stages.
