Abstract

A preliminary study of using a gelatin-based in vivo tissue model to investigate some of the near infrared photoacoustic characteristics that may influence the sensitivity of noninvasive photoacoustic detection of blood glucose in human tissue is described. It is shown that the optical absorption change due to glucose in the near infrared region is small and that the pulsed photoacoustic technique may offer a better detection sensitivity than other conventional optical transmission measurement systems being developed for blood glucose monitoring.
