Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a new technique mainly used in biomedical imaging. We present here a Particle-Fixed Monte Carlo (PFMC) simulation for OCT signal. In the PFMC model, the scattering particles of the sample are assumed to be temporarily fixed and randomly distributed in the simulation of the backscattered light. An efficient partitioning scheme is proposed to speed up this simulation process. The new model explains the exponential decay signal at the interfaces of different media layers observed in OCT experimental measurements.
