Abstract

A method of optical detection of cancerous tissue components was presented. Near infrared (NIR) elastic light scattering and tissue fluorescence imaging was used for developing the cancer detection method. NIR polarized elastic light scattering and fluorescence in the NIR spectral region under laser excitation in green and red spectral regions imaging approaches were also investigated. The obtained images and pathological assessment of the tissue samples were compared to reveal the optical fingerprint characteristics important for cancer detection.
