Paper Abstract

A prototype mid-infrared spectral imaging system for rapid assessment of cells for cytological diagnosis is reported. Based on a fibre optic super-continuum source that has large spectral brightness and is coupled in to an acousto-optic tuneable filter that can rapidly scan over a set of wavelengths that are chosen to give a high level of selectivity for a specific skin disease. The system has the potential to collect an image cube of 100 wavelengths and 300k pixels in 2 seconds so that cells on living people could be analysed. The system has been evaluated with colon cells over 2700- 3100 cm-1.
