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 combined-field 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.
