Paper Abstract

We have conducted a preliminary study of the potential for diagnostic spectroscopy based on elastic light scattering to serve as a method for optically-guided biopsy to reduce sampling errors and thereby improve sensitivity, in detecting prostate cancer. This method also has the potential to provide real-time diagnostic assistance in surgical and treatment procedures.
