Paper Abstract

A portable hybrid frequency domain (FD)-continuous wave (CW) Near-Infrared spectroscopy NIRS system has been developed for quantifying changes in total hemoglobin, oxygen saturation and water content in the breast during neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Simultaneous acquisition of two sets of 3 FD channels and 3 CW channels could be completed within 1 min. System calibration and homogeneous phantom measurement show phase variation less than 3% when PMT gain from 0.7 to 1.1 was used. The study of integrating this system into the workflow of clinical oncology practice is ongoing.
