Abstract

Dilutions of Intralipid 20% are widely used as optical phantoms for mimicking scattering properties of turbid media such as tissues. One of the frequently used methodologies for quantifying the scattering coefficient and anisotropy of Intralipid 20% is the use of single-particle Mie scattering theory, which in fact is not valid for nontenuous media. Hence, two methodologies consisting of analytical wave theory and effective medium theory, incorporating particle size distribution and concentration-dependent correlated scattering phenomena, are used to estimate the effective scattering coefficient and anisotropy of Intralipid 20% dilutions (1%–100% v/v) from 380 to 1000 nm.
