Abstract

Optical imaging used for medical applications has been commonplace for decades. With advances in camera technology and increased consumer interest in surgeries where post-operation is more cosmetically appealing and with faster recoveries. These shifts have pushed advancements in clinical procedures that require precision surgical instruments. Phantoms can serve as a calibration tool for surgical equipment as well as training for surgical procedures allowing an accurate representation of human tissue. The drawbacks of the phantoms currently on the market are, limited applications, short "shelf life," and high production costs. We are designing and developing a cost-effective phantom that is both near-infrared (NIR) and X-ray penetrable with removable inserts allowing for efficient testing of many different parameters. We will be using various optical techniques to evaluate the properties of current phantoms and design new molds with CAD software such as Meshmixer.
