In this study, we developed a Monte Carlo Simulation for forward problem of photon migration in non-homogeneous medium. We validated our program against tMCimg, developed by Boas and colleagues, for some simple geometries. Eventually our program gives reasonable results for mediums which are not too complex but for more complex mediums because of very long computational time, it's not practical although theoretically there is no problem.
