We present rigorous solutions of scattering problems involving healthy red blood cells (RBCs) and diseased RBCs with deformed shapes. Scattering cross-section (SCS) values for different RBC shapes and different orientations are obtained accurately and efficiently using a sophisticated simulation environment based on the electric and magnetic current combinedfield integral equation and the multilevel fast multipole algorithm. Using SCS values, we determine strict guidelines to distinguish deformed RBCs from healthy RBCs and to diagnose related diseases.
