Paper Abstract

In this report, clinical examples of using combined ultrasound and optical diffused wave technique to image tumor total hemoglobin concentration and tumor hypoxia are given. These examples demonstrate that the sensitivity and specificity of using tumor hemoglobin level as diagnostic index are much higher than that of tumor hypoxia.
