Time domain Doppler Optical Coherence Tomography (DOCT) technique was applied to measure flow velocity profiles in highly scattering media. We analyzed the distortions of the measured velocity profiles of the 1% Intralipid solution flow embedded into the scattering medium at different embedding depths. For this purpose a tissue phantom consisting of a plain glass capillary (inner diameter 0.3 mm) embedded into a slab of Intralipid solution mimicking human skin was designed. The measured flow velocity profiles and behavior of distortions caused by multiple scattering are shown.
