Abstract

Confocal Reflectance Microscope images the skin in 4 dimensions. The third and fourth dimensions being the wavelength and the depth, respectively. We compare traditional methods with new techniques for component separation. The components from the skin images are cell/nuclei, mitochondria, melanin, organelles and other minor components. The spectral unmixing method N-finder is used to extract end members. The results of this method will be compared with ICA methods that will be developed for the 4-dimensional data. The components and their concentrations (abundances) will be output from these methods.
