Abstract

An introduction to the basics of spectral imaging as applied to biological tissues is presented. An example of a spectral image of a face is used to demonstrate the data and spectral analysis that specify the melanin content (M), blood content (B), tissue oxygen saturation (S), water content (W), fraction of scattering due to Rayleigh scattering (f) and due to Mie scattering (1-f), and the reduced scattering coefficient at 500-nm wavelength (μ′ s 500 nm). The sensitivity of reflectance spectra to variation in the various parameters is illustrated.
