The ability of combining near-infrared (NIR) Raman spectroscopy with support vector machines (SVM) for improving multi-class classification between different histopathological groups in tissues was evaluated in this study. A total of 105 colonic tissue specimens from 59 patients including 41 normal, 18 hyperplastic polyps and 46 adenocarcinomas were used for this purpose. A rapid-acquisition dispersive-type NIR Raman system was utilized for tissue Raman spectroscopic measurements at 785-nm… CONTINUE READING
