6 March 2009 Correlation between the skewness and the scattering coefficient of intralipid solution

We demonstrated that a simple image statistic, skewness, is able to distinguish the various concentration of Intralipid solution by using optical coherence tomography. The results showed that the skewness is increased with the concentration of Intralipid solution. According to Mie theory, the skewness is correlated with the scattering coefficient of Intralipid solution. And the correlation between skewness and scattering coefficient is explained that the skewness exploits the characteristic of asymmetry of probability density distribution of image intensity.
