Paper Abstract

We present the temperature dependence of absorption and reduced scattering coefficients of 1.8% Intralipid measured by frequency-domain photon-migration spectroscopy between 710 and 850 nm. These measurements were made in the physiologically relevant 30 to 40°C temperature range. The temperature coefficients for absorption were consistent during heating and cooling and follow closely other reported results. The change in absorption coefficient at 740 nm suggests that a minimum temperature change of 4°C is observable within the error limits. We found that the reduced scattering coefficient shows a hysteresis with temperature at 740 nm. The temperature coefficient for reduced scattering determined from heating cycle measurements agrees with theory and other measurements within the error limits.
