- Recently, by compensating shortcomings of existing ones, a novel vein-visualizing device was proposed. It
highly improves the intuitiveness and the accuracy of venipuncture, but further developments are still required. In this
study, as a preliminary work for the device, a phantom experiment was conducted on the propagation of NIR rays under
the skin. For this, a NIR diode module and an agar phantom including a vein model were produced, and then, the
propagation of NIR rays inside of the phantom was captured by an IR camera. If NIR rays are casted perpendicularly to
the surface just above the vein model, the vein model can take much light, but the skin must be occluded with the NIR
diode module. Also, if the module is shifted in order to get a wide field of vision, the vein model may not receive
enough light. However, in the case of a large incidence angle, enough NIR rays can reach the vein model, and
simultaneously, a wide field of vision can be obtained.
