Breast cancer detection by mapping hemoglobin concentration and oxygen saturation.

Abstract

Near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopic imaging technology provides a new modality for measuring changes in total hemoglobin concentration (HbT) and blood oxygen saturation (SO2) in human tissue. The technology can be used to detect breast cancer because cancers may cause greater vascularization and greater oxygen consumption than in normal tissue. Based on the… (More)
