Paper Abstract

In present work, fluorescence spectra of normal cervical tissue as well as some benign lesions were obtained ex vivo with 365 +/- 20 nm and 405 +/- 30 excitation. In all case of ectopia emissions from normal area appeared more intensive than from pathological one. Intensive fluorescence with specific spectral lineshape was observed on the posttraumatic scars, the main contribution to the spectrum was attributed to collagen. On the base of phantom measurement, explanation of appearance of a weak peak at 505-515 nm in tissue fluorescence spectra was proposed.
