Paper Abstract

The National Institute of Standards and Technology and the National Institutes of Health have started a collaborative study on the development of lighting that will provide enhanced, tissue-specific contrast with respect to its surroundings. In this paper we describe existing NIST technologies utilized for this project such as a computational model for color rendering and a new spectrally tunable lighting technology. We will also describe the calibration and validation procedure of a hyperspectral camera system. Finally, we show examples of imaged tissues under various lighting conditions.
