Paper Abstract

The goal of this study was to optimize measurement techniques for tissue point spectroscopy during gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy, as part of a program to enhance and apply autofluorescence/reflectance imaging for early GI cancer detection. The effect of fiberoptic probe pressure on tissue on the measured diffuse reflectance spectra was evaluated, with both fiber-to-fiber probe geometry (standard contact probe) and imaging illumination geometry (wide field illumination and fiber collection) for the wavelength range 440-640 nm, using normal skin in vivo as a model tissue, and by taking continuous spectral measurements while the fiber is approaching the tissue. The most significant finding was a sudden change in the reflectance signal that occurs as the probe comes into contact with the tissue surface.
