Abstract
Cancer is one of the most common human threats around the world and diagnosis based on optical spectroscopy especially fluorescence technique has been established as the standard approach among scientist to explore the biochemical and morphological changes in tissues. In this regard, the present work aims to extract spectral signatures of the various fluorophores present in oral tissues using parallel factor analysis (PARAFAC). Subsequently, the statistical analysis also to be performed to show its diagnostic potential in distinguishing malignant, premalignant from normal oral tissues. Hence, the present study may lead to the possible and/or alternative tool for oral cancer diagnosis.
