An optically tunable, solid tissue phantom was developed in order to aid in the verification and validation of non-destructive cancer detection technologies based on fluorescence spectroscopy. The solid tissue phantom contained agarose, hemoglobin, Intralipid, NADH, and FAD. The redox ratio of the solid phantoms were shown to be tunable; thus, indicating that these phantoms could be used to tailor specific optical conditions that mimic cancerous and healthy tissues. Therefore, this solid tissue phantom can serve as a suitable test bed to evaluate fluorescence spectroscopy based cancer detection devices.
