Tissue autofluorescence depends on endogenous fluorophores in the tissue, which undergo a change associated with malignant transformation. This change can be detected as an alteration in the spectral profile and intensity of autofluorescence. Our purpose was to determine the optimal excitation and emission wavelengths for autofluorescence diagnosis of bladder cancer. A total of 52 bladder tissue specimens were obtained from 25 patients undergoing mucosal biopsies or surgical resections of… CONTINUE READING
