Optical methods for monitoring physiological tissue state are important and useful because they are non-invasive and sensitive. Experimental measurements of the full scattering profile of circular phantoms are presented. We report, for the first time, an experimental observation of a typical reflected light intensity behavior for a circular structure characterized by the isobaric point. We previously suggested a new theoretically method for measuring the full scattering profile, which is the angular distribution of light intensity, of cylindrical tissues. In this work we present that the experimental result match the simulation results. We show the isobaric point at 105° for a cylindrical phantom with a 7mm diameter, while for a 16mm diameter phantom the isobaric point is at 125°. Furthermore, the experimental work present a new crossover point of the full scattering profiles of subjects with different diameters of the cylindrical tissues.
