Paper Abstract

Raman Spectroscopy is an optical diagnostic technique applied in this study to characterise breast tissue by biochemical signature spectra. In cross-validated results, Raman Spectroscopy identifies invasive breast carcinoma with 75 - 97% agreement with Histology opinion. Axillary lymph nodes from patients with breast carcinoma were mapped with confocal Raman Spectroscopy and colour-weighted principal component analysis (PCA) images were used to identify local biochemical features and correlate these with parallel section slides analysed with routine histology.
