This publication represented 1 of 3 journal articles that comprimised my dissertation. For this paper I developed and coded a Monte Carlo model to simulate a confocal system imaging in tissue to model performance characteristics of the system. The results showed that a new type of confocal design, a multi-point scanner, would significantly improve the current design. This resulted in a new system, as well as a a patent application.
