Paper Abstract

Near infrared diffuse optical spectroscopy and imaging may enhance existing technologies for breast cancer screening, diagnosis, and treatment. NIR spectroscopy yields quantitative functional information that cannot be obtained with other non-invasive radiological techniques. In this study we focused upon the origins of this contrast in healthy breast, especially from water and lipids.
