Paper Abstract

The incidence rate of the prostatic hyperplasia is increasing in near decade, early detection is important for preventing the prostatic cancer (PCa). In this study, the images of prostate and cavernous nerves were carried out using intrinsic fluorescence and scattering properties of the tissues without any exogenous dye or contrast agent based on nonlinear optical microscope. The texture feature and optical property of the interfibrillar substance in prostate tissue were extracted and analyzed for charactering the prostate structure. It will be the feature parameter to differentiate the normal, the inflammation or cancer of prostate tissue in clinical with the application of miniature endoscope nonlinear optical microscope in vivo.
