Paper Abstract

Optimization of a ring optical-fiber catheter for oncological diagnostics has been carried out. A new method of cancer diagnostics using autofluorescence of tissues has been realized during endoscopy and surgery, using a specially developed optical scheme and catheter for oncological diagnostics. Criteria of stomach and lungs cancer diagnostics obtained by analysis of autofluorescence differences on more than 10,000 spectra measured in vivo from human tissues are presented.
