Paper Abstract

The aim of this paper is to introduce an optoelectronic mammoscope that has been developed at Warsaw University of Technology for early breast cancer detection. The idea of the mammoscope is based on a direct comparison of light transmission spectra through breast tissue obtained for two selected wavelengths: 670 nm and 810 nm. As light sources, two types of laser diode are used. The optoelectronic mammoscope is equipped with a specially designed optoelectronic head which decreases light path throughout the breast tissue under examination and, simultaneously increases intensity of the light transmitted through the tissue. At the output, a CCD camera coupled to the IBM PC/486 computer is used for detection of shadow images created by the transmitted light at both wavelengths.
