Paper Abstract

This study is focused on the assessment of refractive index of whole blood and hemoglobin solution at different concentrations of glucose using optical coherence tomography (OCT). It is shown that the OCT refractive index measurements of blood can be potentially applied as a simple and sensitive method for the evaluation of glycated hemoglobin amount.
