Abstract: Monte Carlo (MC) simulation for light propagation in tissue is the gold standard for studying the light propagation in biological tissue and has been used for years. Interaction of photons with a medium is simulated based on its optical properties. New simulation geometries, tissue-light interaction methods, and recording techniques are designed recently. Applications, such as whole mouse body simulations for fluorescence imaging, eye model for blood vessel imaging, skin model for terahertz imaging, human head model for sinus imaging, have emerged. Here, we review the technical advances and recent applications of MC simulation.
