Abstract:

This paper describes mathematical techniques to correct for analyte-irrelevant optical variability in tissue spectra by combining multiple preprocessing techniques to address variability in spectral properties of tissue overlying and within the muscle. A mathematical preprocessing method called principal component analysis (PCA) loading correction is discussed for removal of inter-subject, analyte-irrelevant variations in muscle scattering from continuous-wave diffuse reflectance near-infrared (NIR) spectra. The correction is completed by orthogonalizing spectra to a set of loading vectors of the principal components obtained from principal component analysis of spectra with the same analyte value, across different subjects in the calibration set. Once the loading vectors are obtained, no knowledge of analyte values is required for future spectral correction. The method was tested on tissue-like, three-layer phantoms using partial least squares (PLS) regression to predict the absorber concentration in the phantom muscle layer from the NIR spectra. Two other mathematical methods, short-distance correction to remove spectral interference from skin and fat layers and standard normal variate scaling, were also applied and/or combined with the proposed method prior to the PLS analysis. Each of the preprocessing methods improved model prediction and/or reduced model complexity. The combination of the three preprocessing methods provided the most accurate prediction results. We also performed a preliminary validation on in vivo human tissue spectra.
