Paper Abstract

Breast tissues were investigated using diffuse reflectance spectroscopy to yield the absorption spectrum from Kubelka-Munk Function (KMF). A specified spectral feature measured in adipose tissue was assign to (beta) -carotene, which can be used to separate fat from other molecular components in breast tissues. The peaks of (KMF) at 260nm and 280nm were attributed to DNA and proteins.
