ABSTRACT: A device based on Polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography is
developed to monitor blood glucose levels in human subjects. The device was
initially tested with tissue phantom. The measurements with human subjects for
various glucose concentration levels are found to be linearly dependent on the
degree of circular polarization obtainable from the PS-OCT.
ABSTRACT: The utility of optical coherence tomography signal intensity for measurement
of glucose concentration has been analysed in tissue phantom and blood samples
from human subjects. The diffusion equation based calculations as well as
in-vivo OCT signal measurements confirms the cyclic correlation of signal
intensity with glucose concentration and scatterer size.
