Paper Abstract

It is necessary to get optical information within tissue in order to improve the application of non-invasive blood glucose sensing. However, the light penetration depth is seriously limited due to high scattering effects of biological tissues, which restricts the detection precision of non-invasive blood glucose sensing. Tissue optical clearing technique is one of the effective approaches to reduce the scattering effect and increase the light penetration depth into biological tissues. In this talk, it is our aim to study the preliminary application of optical clearing to non-invasive blood glucose sensing based on Monte Carlo simulation. Firstly, optical properties of intralipid solutions mixing with different concentration of glucose were calculated within the wavelengths of 1000~1700nm. The transmittance spectra of intralipid solutions with and without glycerol as optical clearing agent were investigated through Monte Carlo simulation. Different concentrations of glycerol were taken into account. Furthermore, the root mean square error of prediction (RMSEP) was obtained by performing partial least squares (PLS) modelling. Simulation results showed that the transmittance increased gradually with the increase of glycerol concentration, which suggested that the optical clearing effect appeared. Meanwhile, the RMSEP decreased as the glycerol concentration increased. RMSEP has improved by 30.91% in the simulation, which showed the great potential of tissue optical clearing technique to effectively improve the predicting precision of non-invasive blood glucose sensing.
