Paper Abstract

Early detection of lung cancer has been a significant area of interest due to the large number of cancer-related deaths. The microscopic fluorescence and imaging of excised lung tissue sections were studied using a novel microspectrophotometric system. The intrinsic autofluorescence distributions in different tissue layers of the lung were observed in normal and malignant tissues. The preliminary results show that the microscopic fluorescence analysis on different tissue layers can provide a powerful means to explore the origin of spectral differences between normal and abnormal lung tissues.
