Paper Abstract

The statistics of backscattered light are used for tissue discrimination. The time series of the detected light is considered as realization functions of weak stationary processes. Auto- and cross-spectra, as well as squared coherencies, are computed. The validity of the method is demonstrated by differentiation between normal tissue and tumor and for detection of therapy efficacy in photodynamic therapy.
