A simple but effective method of spectral processing was developed to minimize or remove the effects of the presence of superficial blood on tissue optical spectra and, hence, enhance the performance of optical-spectroscopic-based in vivo tissue diagnosis and surgical guidance. This spectral-processing algorithm was developed using the principles of absorption-induced light attenuation wherein the ratio of fluorescence intensity (F) and the hth power of diffuse reflectance intensity (Rd) at a… CONTINUE READING
