This work applies the discrete-ordinate method (DOM) to study azimuthally dependent radiative transfer in a two-dimensional cylindrical medium with spatially varying properties. Product angular quadratures are selected to generate discrete-ordinate approximations. The validity of the present DOM scheme is examined by comparing the present results with the results available in the literature. The effects of the optical thickness and the spatially varying extinction coefficient, scattering albedo and coefficients of the phase function are investigated.
