Hyperspectral image projection of a pig kidney for the evaluation of imagers used for oximetry

Published

Abstract

Hyperspectral image projection applied to optical medical imaging can provide a means to evaluate imager performance. This allows repeated viewing of unique surgical scenes without the need for costly experiments on patients. Additionally, the generated scene can be well characterized and used repeatedly as a standard by many different sensors at different times and locations. This paper describes the use of a hyperspectral image of a pig kidney. The scene of the kidney is projected with the full spectral content allowing the oxygenation status of the tissue to be observed and evaluated spatially.
