Abstract: Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) has been used in biomedical applications as a method to non-invasively detect changes occurring in tissue such as the detection of skin cancer. The effect of skin tone on detection of skin cancer has however not been studied extensively. Skin simulating phantoms with different optical properties can be used to optimise a system before it can be used on patients. For this reason accurately knowing the optical properties is imperative. An integrating sphere system can be used to determine these optical properties. Preliminary results from phantom and human skin indicate that skin tone may influence the data obtained from OCT images.
