Fat/water ratios measured with diffuse reflectance spectroscopy to detect breast tumor boundaries

Abstract

Recognition of the tumor during breast-conserving surgery (BCS) can be very difficult and currently a robust method of margin assessment for the surgical setting is not available. As a result, tumor-positive margins, which require additional treatment, are not found until histopathologic evaluation. With diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (DRS), tissue can be… (More)
