Paper Abstract

Hyperspectral imaging of skin combines the spectral information of diffuse reflectance spectroscopy with the spatial information of 2D imaging. Skin chromophore maps can be reconstructed in which features such as pigmented lesions, diffuse and localized erythema, areas of increased blood stasis, etc. could be identified and the relative parameters quantified. Hyperspectral imaging is the only reliable method to produce a quantitative distribution map of chromophores contributing to the color appearance of the skin.
