The objective of this paper is to validate the solution of transient radiation transfer equation with experimental measurements using short pulse laser source having a Gaussian distribution. The transient radiative transfer equation for the case of short pulse laser propagation through scattering absorbing media such as tissue is an integrodifferential equation and is therefore complicated to solve. The time-dependent discrete ordinates method in conjunction with high order upwind piecewise parabolic interpolation scheme is used to solve the transient radiative transfer equation for the case of anisotropically scattering absorbing medium having a rectangular geometry in which an inhomogeneity is embedded. A parametric study involving different scattering and absorption coefficients of the medium, inhomogeneity and inhomogeneity size as well as the detector position is performed. The numerical modeling results and experimental measurements are in excellent agreement for various parameters studied in this paper.
