Abstract

In response to the comment of Schins and Müller [Appl. Opt. 41, 1995 (2002)] on a recent paper by Blanca and Saloma [Appl. Opt. 39, 5187 (2000)], I discuss briefly the conditions in which the potential benefits of third-harmonic generation imaging are achieved in a highly scattering medium. The approximations that were adapted in Blanca and Saloma’s Monte Carlo simulation are also explained.
