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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
