The laser backscattering from biological tissues depends on their composition and blood flow. The onset of abnormalities in tissues is associated with the change in composition at a specific location which may affect laser backscattering. The objective of this work is to study the point-to-point compositional variation of male breast tissues as this site has been prone to cancer development. The normalized backscattered intensity (NBI) profiles at various locations of human chest region of five… CONTINUE READING
