Experimental study of the multiple scattering effect on the flow velocity profiles measured in Intralipid phantoms by DOCT
Time domain Doppler Optical Coherence Tomography (DOCT) technique was applied to measure flow velocity profiles in highly scattering media. We analyzed the distortions of the measured velocity profiles of the 1% Intralipid solution flow embedded into the scattering medium at different embedding depths. For this purpose a tissue phantom consisting of a plain glass capillary (inner diameter 0.3 mm) embedded into a slab of Intralipid solution mimicking human skin was designed. The measured flow velocity profiles and behavior of distortions caused by multiple scattering are shown.
