This paper presents the successful creation of new phantom for optical coherence tomography (OCT) aimed on perfusion simulation. The phantom is created from syringe pump and polypropylene hollow fiber with porous walls embeded in the glass capillary to provide small outer environment. Its function was tested by gold nanorods as a flowing medium and imaged by commercial swept-source OCT system. Results showed that the fiber is permeable for used gold nanorods which are frequently declared as possible contrast agents for OCT and this permeability can be displayed by OCT.
