For a function that determines the ratio of the contribution from multiple scattering within the frames of small-angle approximation of the transfer theory to a singly scattered signal, an asymptotic series by powers of a small parameter is constructed, i.e., the viewing angle of the receiver. A connection between the series' coefficients and microstructural parameters of the media is established. Boundaries of applicability of the asymptotic approximation are estimated numerically.
