Abstract
The feasibility of using visible and/or near-infrared radiation for screening for breast cancer has been examined. Results are presented of measurements of the total attenuation coefficient of pig adipose at wavelengths of 633nm and 1.15μm, and of experiments which attempt to discover how transillumination image resolution might be improved by collimating the scattered radiation.
