Near Infrared Spectroscopy for Improving Breast Core Needle Biopsy
Annual summary 1 Sep 2004-1 Aug 2005
Pagination or Media Count:
We have developed a near infrared photon migration fiber optic probe which can be inserted into the bore of a breast core biopsy needle, enabling preliminary diagnosis of breast lesions before they are removed. This probe has been tested in artificial phantoms and in human subjects.
