The intensity of the collimated and diffusely scattered components of a light flux transmitted through a layer of adipose tissue at various temperatures has been investigated. It is shown that, when the tissue is heated from 5 to 50 °C, a sharp degradation in the scattering properties of adipose tissue occurs in the temperature range 25-30 °C. The fluorescence of adipose tissue under UV irradiation has also been investigated. It is found that the fluorescence intensity decreases with time. It is established that the fluorescence intensity decreases as temperature increases. © 2003 Optical Society of America
