The expediency of having NIR fluorescent tissue phantoms carry SI units of light (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): Maritoni Litorja

Paper Abstract

Tissue phantoms for near infrared fluorescence imaging consisting of quantum dots embedded in hard polymer has become the material of choice as calibrator for near infrared fluorescence imaging. Through a calibration process, it can acquire International Standard (SI) units of light, which advances its utility as a possible reference standard for the fluorescence guided imaging community. In this paper I will discuss the calibration steps, and how the calibrated tissue phantoms can be used as a standard by both the imaging device and contrast agent developer.
