Abstract

Light propagation in the slab head model that consists of five types of tissues was calculated to estimate the fluorescent intensity emerged from a molecular probe in the brain by a Monte Carlo simulation. The thickness of the scalp, skull and cerebrospinal fluid layer was varied to analyze the influence of the thickness of the superficial tissues on the fluorescent intensity detected on the scalp surface. The fluorescent intensity is exponentially reduced with increasing the depth of the brain surface. The thickness of the cerebrospinal fluid layer more significantly affects the fluorescent intensity than that of the scalp and skull.
