Paper Abstract

A diagnostic method to detect differences between diseased and normal tissue from bladder carcinoma by FTIR-microspectroscopy is described. Regions of interest on 10 micrometer thin tissue sections where mapped in transmission mode. After IR-Mapping, the samples have been analyzed with common pathological techniques. Quadratic discriminant as well as correlation analysis was applied to the obtained IR-maps allowing differentiation between cancerous and normal tissue. In the case of the correlation analyses it is further possible to distinguish between different types of tissue.
