Abstract: Recently, by compensating shortcomings of existing ones, a novel vein-visualizing device was proposed. It highly improves the intuitiveness and the accuracy of venipuncture, but further developments are still required. In this study, as a preliminary work for the device, a phantom experiment was conducted on the propagation ofNIR rays under the skin. For this, a NIR diode module and an agar phantom including a vein model were produced, and then, the propagation ofNIR rays inside of the phantom was captured by…
