Abstract: Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) techniques are sensitive to absorption and scattering properties of biological tissue. NIRS and diffuse optical imaging have been applied to breast tissue for decades to exploit the high absorption of tumors resulting from their increased blood content. By developing methods focused on measuring the inherent contrast of tumors, optical imaging can be use... read more
