Local and superficial optical characterization of biological tissues can be achieved by measuring the spatially resolved diffuse reflectance at small source-detector separations. The sensitivity of the signal to the phase function, absorption and scattering coefficients were studied using Monte Carlo simulations. Measurements of spatially resolved reflectance were performed in vivo on human brain with source-detector separations from 0.3 to 1.5 mm. Distinct optical properties were found between normal cortex, astrocytoma of optic nerve and normal optic nerve.
