Paper Abstract

A novel CW optical system is designed for breast cancer imaging, which has several distinguished features. It doesn't need an additional baseline measurement for image reconstruction. It measures a portion of the breast tissue at one time, which leads to a much simpler and fast signal processing and also makes it very flexible to use. A spectroscopy calibration approach is developed to reduce random system errors.
