Possible correlation between blood glucose concentration and the reduced scattering coefficient of tissues in the near infrared.

Abstract

Tissue glucose levels affect the refractive index of the extracellular fluid. The difference in refractive index between the extracellular fluid and the cellular components plays a role in determining the reduced scattering coefficient (micro(s)') of tissue. Hence a physical correlation may exist between the reduced scattering coefficient and glucose… (More)
