Paper Abstract

Spatial variation of fluorescence intensity in human breast tissues was studied. A diffusion theory model describing fluorescence light energy distribution inside a thick and turbid medium like human tissue was developed. Experimental data were fitted with the theoretical model to obtain reduced scattering coefficient and absorption coefficient at different fluorescence wavelengths with 488nm excitation of normal, malignant and benign breast tissues. Computed reduced scattering and absorption coefficients of malignant tissues were observed to be more as compared to the normal tissues and benign tumors.
