31 October 2016 Diffuse reflectance spectroscopy study of in vitro tissue for nasopharyngeal carcinoma diagnosis
Author Affiliations +
Diffuse reflectance spectroscopy is a non-contact, non-invasive, and low-cost optical technique that provides real-time feedback about the absorptive characteristics and the microstructure properties of biological tissue. This optical technique shows the potential for monitoring metabolic status associated with malignancy transformation. Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is the third most frequently diagnosed cancer associated with virus and is the most common male malignancy with a characteristic regional and racial distribution worldwide. This paper investigates the current screening state of nasopharyngeal malignancies and also provides an overview on the applications of diffuse reflectance spectroscopy in the cancer detection. Furthermore, the latest research relevant to the diagnosis of NPC in vitro tissue using diffuse reflectance spectroscopy is introduced. The results of diffuse reflectance spectroscopy are summarized, showing a significant experimental and clinical value for further NPC detection in vivo in the future.
