26 February 2018 Fibre optic probe for fluorescence diagnostics with blood influence compensation
Author Affiliations +
To minimise the influence of blood content on the fluorescence measurements in vivo, a fibre optical probe combining fluorescence and diffuse reflectance measurements was developed. For the inverse solution of the blood content recovery, a set of neural networks trained by the Monte Carlo generated learning set was used. An approach of fluorescence measurements triggered by simultaneous real-time measurements of blood content in living tissue during moderate changes in contact pressure of the optic probe is proposed. The method allows one to decrease the necessary pressure on the probe as well as increase the repeatability of the measurements. The developed approach was verified in a series of experiments on volunteers with fluorescence excitation at 365 nm and 450 nm. The proposed technology is of particular interest in the development of new fluorescence-based optical biopsy systems.
