A new method of Monte Carlo simulation is developed to simulate the photon migration path in a scattering medium after an ultrashort-pulse laser beam comes into the medium. The most probable trajectory of photons at an instant can be obtained with this method. How the photon migration paths are affected by the optical parameters of the scattering medium is analyzed. It is also concluded that the absorption coefficient has no effect on the most probable trajectory of photons.
