The effects of strong scattering in tissue limit the depth to which light may be focused. However, it has been shown that scattering may be reduced utilizing adaptive optics with a focused ultrasound (US) beam guidestar. The optical signal traveling through the US beam waist is frequency shifted and may be isolated with demodulation. This paper utilizes a multiphysics simulation to model the optical and US interactions in both synthetic tissue and random scattering media. The results illustrate that optical energy may be focused within a turbid medium utilizing a US guidestar. The results also suggest that optical energy travels preferentially along optical channels within a turbid medium.
