Paper Abstract

The non-invasive clinic method of diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (DRS), for the diagnosis of human skin lesions can be performed by using spectrometric devices together with fiber optics probes. However, the operation of most of these devices commercially available is not specifically designed for clinical applications. As a result, the commercial software and the optical hardware of these spectrometers are impractical when trying to conciliate the requirements of a clinical procedure with their operation to perform the DRS for diagnosis purposes. Therefore, the development of home-built acquisition software will impact in a more reliable and practical spectrometric system for clinical environment. In this work is presented the development of an automation system that includes both a user graphical interface and a control system that enable a more reliable and faster acquisition of clinical spectra. The software features a voice control to perform the acquiring spectra process. The impact of this work is mostly the use of available programming platforms to implement a preliminary spectra processing tool that will lead to real-time acquisition of skin reflectance spectra of a given patient.
