In this paper, we proposed the image-based 3D ray-tracing indoor propagation model using patch scattering model which can calculate the scattering phenomenon of the indoor structures. A patch scattering model for modeling indoor structures defines a scattering phenomenon by using RCS(Radar Cross Section) about rectangular patch without complex calculation, for example generating image antennas about each indoor structures. RCS is simply defined as a ratio of scattering power to incident power, and we use bistatic PCS which is simplified numerically by Physical Optics. Also, a simple indoor compensation factor is defined as empirical constant from measured data instead of complex numerical expression because basic patch scattering model cannot include important multipath components, so we san use patch scattering model in indoor environment using indoor compensation factor.
