Paper Abstract

Breast lesions diagnosis and characterization need additional cost-effective techniques to avoid unnecessary invasive procedures, such as core needle biopsies, in the case of benign tumors. Endogenous fluorescence is an effective method to highlight in situ metabolic and/or structural changes between cancerous and non-cancerous lesions. In this context, we developed an original set-up, consisting of a 405 nm laser diode transmitting light through a 25 Gauge (0.45 mm x 50mm) 14° sharp fibered needle to excite intranodular fluorophores around the needle tip and providing real-time labelfree fluorescence spectral analysis of lesions from 450 nm to 650 nm. The objective was to help radiologists to classify suspicious masses in vivo and in real-time within the lesion. We reported the results of spectral differences between 14 invasive lobular carcinomas and 6 intraductal papilloma enrolled in a clinical study.
