Investigation of the use of Raman Spectroscopy for Non-invasive Glucose Calculation in Blood
MetadataShow full item record
According to a study by the American Diabetes Association, 171 million people or 2.8% of people in the world suffered from diabetes. It is important to get more information about blood sugar levels which would allow them to better control their blood sugar levels and help reduce complications. This project was motivated by similar work recently studied by a MIT group. This project uses a simulation of Raman spectroscopy to calculate the glucose content of the simulated blood. Specifically, we back out how much glucose is in our simulated sample and quantitatively understand error within the analysis.
