Paper Abstract

A set-up for time-resolved transmittance and reflectance spectroscopy of diffusive media was upgraded to allow measurements to be performed continuously from 600 to 1100 nm. Time-resolved diffuse optical spectroscopy of breast was carried out on 10 healthy volunteers, demonstrating the feasibility of in vivo measurements up to 1100 nm. The optical characterization of collagen was also extended revealing an absorption peak (around 1020-1030 nm), which could prove of interest for the in vivo quantification of collagen.
