This paper proposes a method of accurate light distribution using the Monte Carlo Simulation. In a Photodynamic Therapy (PDT), accurate light penetration depths are especially important as it is to be expected that applying too little light or too much light could result in inadequate tumor cell kill. The basic theory of this method is statistical iteration of simulation at phantom medium and can model any complex condition in biological tissues without any kind of tool. We performed Monte Carlo simulation with phantom layer having the optical properties of biological tissues. In this result, we could obtained the acceptable light dosimetry in biological phantom. Monte Carlo simulation is very powerful approaching model in radiation transfer for solving a variety of physical and mathematical problems.
