Paper Abstract

Near IR imaging using elastic light scattering and tissue fluorescence under long-wavelength laser excitation are explored for cancer detection. Various types of normal and malignant human tissue samples were utilized in this investigation. A set of images of each tissue sample is recorded. These images are then compared with the histopathology of the tissue sample to reveal the optical fingerprint characteristics suitable for cancer detection. The experimental results indicate that the above approaches can help image and differentiate cancer form normal tissue.
