Furthermore, for a couple of decades Henyey–Greenstein phase function has been a household name in tissue optics and is arguably the most widely used phase function in modeling of light propagation in tissue. Henyey–Greenstein phase function corresponds to a limiting case of the RI correlation for a mass fractal medium with mass fractal dimension approaching 3. Thus, the argument over which form of the correlation function is the most relevant in tissue will most likely continue. Luckily for us, there is a general family of functions that covers all these reasonable possibilities including Gaussian, exponential, stretched exponential, and mass fractal types of correlation functions.

Ripple structure has a much higher frequency, which is proportional to a . Its origin has not been fully understood. It cannot be described by the WKB approximation. It appears that when the forward scattering is considered (including the total scattering cross section), the ripple structure is a result of the interference of surface waves (thus, no strong dependence on n). In backscattering, the ripple structure has a different frequency and can be modeled by the Born approximation. This may sound surprising but, in fact, agrees with the understanding that, as we discussed above, in case of backscattering the validity of the Born approximation greatly exceeds the range given by ka n 1.

On the positive side, if we pose the question: Are we missing an important physical picture by interpreting scattering signals using Mie theory? The answer most likely would be no. , we ask the right question and interpret a Mie theory–based answer in the correct context. , the angular extent of the forward-scattering peak, the spectrum of scattering) can indeed be approximated by the use of Mie theory for an equivalent particle size. So perhaps if we view the size distribution recovered using Mie theory in the context of length scales of refractive index variations rather than real scattering particles, we may not be getting such an incorrect picture after all.
