Using near-infrared spectroscopy to study static and dynamic hemoglobin contrast associated with breast cancer.

Krishnamurthy, Nishanth.

Abstract: Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) of the breast exploits the inherent contrast of tumors due to increased hemoglobin absorption of light relative to healthy tissue. Optical imaging has been used to identify, characterize and monitor breast cancer non-invasively. This work first describes a new instrument for diffuse optical mammography in parallel plate geometry that operates over a broa... read more
