Abstract

This paper presents an overview of modeling light propagation through biological media by solving the photon transport equation. Different variants of the photon transport equation (PTE) are discussed. Several methods for modeling static distributions and the transient response are presented. A discussion on how to mix and match electromagnetic problems with the PTE is also provided.
