    Multilayer Tissue-Like Optical Phantom; a Model for Skin in Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging
    Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an advanced high-resolution non-invasive imaging tool, which delivers three-dimensional (3D) images from the microstructure compartments within the skin tissue. Using OCT one can extract optical properties (scattering coefficient and anisotropy factor) of normal or diseased skin to generate an optical model for skin, which can be used for diagnosis. To verify and validate the optical properties extraction algorithm a tissue-like optical phantom is needed. If the phantom can be multilayer, it can model the skin more accurately. WHAT IS PHANTOM AND WHY IS IT NEEDED? Phantom is a virtual tissue with well-controlled optical properties (refractive ...
