Creation and Evaluation of Solid Optical Tissue Phantoms for Bio-Medical Optics Applications
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Because of their compatibility and precise results bio-optical methods based on measurements of the optical tissue properties gain importance in non-invasive medical therapy and diagnostic. For development and standardization of medical devices optical phantoms are suitable. The present report handles the creation and evaluation of solid tissue phantoms, made up of Agar, Vasolipid and ink utilizing different mixture ratios. After cutting the models in slices of 0.2 to 1.1 mm thickness the absorption- and scattering coefficient were measured using a collimated laser beam setup. As result of the study a formula for the preparation of solid optical tissue phantoms with desired optical properties was found, that is valid for models containing 1.12 % Agar.
