Diffuse reflectance polarization images of turbid media affected by glucose


Diffuse reflectance polarimetry has been used to obtain images from tissue-simulating turbid media with different glucose concentrations to investigate the changes in the polarization patterns induced by glucose. The optical properties change as the concentration of glucose is varied in the medium. The polarization patterns are affected by the overall optical properties of the turbid medium under study. This approach has potential applications in actual biological tissues for rapidly determining glucose levels non-invasively.
