Optical technologies, in particular fluorescence spectroscopy, have shown the potential to provide improved detection methods for cervical neoplasia that are sensitive and cost effective through accurate, objective, instantaneous point-of-care diagnostic tools. The specific goals of this study were to analyze reflectance spectra of normal and neoplastic cervical tissue in vivo and to evaluate the data for use in diagnostic algorithm development. Spectroscopic measurements were obtained at four… CONTINUE READING
