The use of diffuse optical spectroscopy and accompanying methods has been shown to capture, in real time, diseases such as breast cancer that may be harder to identify with other technologies.

DOUGLAS FARMER, SENIOR EDITOR [email protected]

Diffuse optics and the study of light absorption and scattering in various tissues can track blood oxygenation and other factors that help assemble an accurate medical diagnosis. Light scatters multiple times when traveling through a thick tissue sample, hence the “diffuse” property of this technique. Diffuse optical imaging has been shown to be a reliable measure for evaluating the health and outcomes of patients undergoing cardiac surgery, metabolic treatment, and tests for cancer (Figure 1). Breast cancer, in particular, has been both a tangible and virtual target for these...Read full article
