Raman endoscopy for the in situ investigation of advancing colorectal tumors in live model mice.

Abstract

The aim of the present study is to evaluate the capability of a miniaturized Raman endoscope (mRE) system to monitor the advancement of colorectal tumors in model mice as a method that is noninvasive to the tumor itself. Nevertheless, the endoscope is narrow enough to observe the inside of the mouse colon in such a way that is semi-noninvasive to the animal… (More)
