Description

This repository contains the data required for the paper "The effects of skin tone on photoacoustic imaging and oximetry". Figure papers can all be reproduced using code available on GitHub: https://github.com/BohndiekLab/melanin-phantom-simulation-paper. Please follow the README available at this link to do so.

The aim of the study is to understand how photoacoustic imaging is affected by skin colour. To do so, we ran photoacoustic simulations of a forearm and a cylindrical blood flow phantom, imaged a blood-flow phantom in a commercial photoacoustic imaging system (iThera inVision, iThera Medical GmbH) and imaged pigmented mice. Further details can be obtained in the associated publication. We particularly looked at how blood oximetry was affected by skin tone.
