Paper Abstract

Optical diagnostics has the potential to provide real-time diagnosis of tissue noninvasively, and many optical diagnostic techniques are receiving extensive attention and being developed. Frequency domain (FD) near-infrared diffuse spectroscopy (NIRS) is one of the three common techniques in NIRS field. Generally, a FD system modulates the light intensity in radio frequency and measures the amplitude attenuation and phase delay of the diffused light using heterodyne detection. This article deals with the method for eliminating or calibrating both coupling factor and the intrinsic parameters of the measurement system, which include the intrinsic amplitude attenuation and intrinsic phase delay. Several calibration methods are proposed, namely, calibration with standard phantom, calibration based on multiple source-detector separations (SDS), and calibration with the combination of standard phantom and multiple SDS. Two solid tubular phantoms with known optical properties are adopted to evaluate the proposed calibration methods. Endoscopic measurements on the phantoms were carried on to obtain the amplitude attenuation and phase delay while Monte Carlo simulation was employed to calculate the "real" ones. Results show that the calibration method with the combination of standard phantom and multiple SDS gets the minimum relative error of amplitude.
