OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to initiate neural net construction for the detection of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia by fluorescence imaging. STUDY DESIGN Thirty-three women with abnormal Papanicolaou smears underwent fluorescence imaging during colposcopy. With the use of >4000 training pixels and >1000 test pixels, intrapatient nets were(More)
An infrared-transmitting chalcogenide fiber was used as an optical probe to analyze qualitatively and quantitatively various chemical substances in aqueous solutions. An unclad fiber with 380-microm diameter was combined with a Fourier transform infrared spectrometer to monitor the concentration of the analytes in solutions by measuring the changes in the(More)
The attenuation of incoherent infrared radiation for wavelengths from 6 to 20 microm was investigated for hollow sapphire and silica waveguides suitable for applications in spectroscopy and thermometry. A low-attenuation region was exhibited between 9.6 and 17.2 microm for hollow sapphire fibers and between 7.25 and 9.5 microm for hollow silica fibers as a(More)
