Paper Abstract

This paper presents experimental studies on diffuse reflectance spectra of blood in cylindrical glass vessels embedded in the Intralipid solution as a skin tissue model, and also f human skin surfaces. The measured spectra are mainly governed by the absorption characteristics of a small amount of blood added into the Intralipid medium. To evaluate quantitatively diffuse reflectance spectra, we employed the color perception on the basis of the CIE x-y chromaticity diagram. Results for the skin tissue model were found to coincide with those for veins in the human skin tissue.
