Paper Abstract

We present an object oriented GPU-accelerated Monte Carlo tool for the online simulation of reflectance spectra and color of the human skin in visible and near-infrared (NIR) spectral region. Human skin is represented as multi-layered medium. The variations in spatial distribution of blood, pheomelanin, eumelanin, index of blood oxygen saturation, hematocrit, and volume fraction of water are taken into account. The optical properties of skin tissues and the results of simulation of skin reflectance spectra and corresponding skin colors are presented.
