Abstract

We present a method and technique of using hyperspectral diffuse reflectance for rapid determination of the optical properties of turbid media. A hyperspectral imaging system in line scanning mode was used to acquire spatial diffuse reflectance profiles from liquid phantoms made up of absorbing dyes and fat emulsion scatterers over the spectral range of 4501000nm instantaneously. The hyperspectral reflectance data were analyzed by using a steady-state diffusion approximation model for semi-infinite homogeneous media. A calibration procedure was developed to compensate the nonuniform instrument response of the imaging system, and a curve-fitting algorithm was used to extract absorption and reduced scattering coefficients (μa and μs, respectively) for the phantoms in the wavelength range from 530 to 900nm. The hyperspectral imaging system gave good measures of μa and μs for the phantoms with average fitting errors of 12% and 7%, respectively. The hyperspectral imaging technique is fast, noncontact, and easy to use, which makes it especially suitable for measurement of the optical properties of turbid liquid and solid foods.
