In this paper experimental and numerical studies of the propagation of short-pulsed lasers through scattering and absorbing media are presented. Experimental results of a 60 ps pulse laser transmission in tissue phantoms are obtained and compared with Monte Carlo simulations. Good agreement between the Monte Carlo simulation and experimental measurement is found. Three models are developed for the simulation of short pulse transport. Benchmark comparisons among the Monte Carlo (MC), transient discrete ordinates method (TDOM) and transient radiation element method (TREM) are conducted.
