Abstract
Seven illumination wavelengths from 270 to 364 nm were investigated for their ability to produce differences in the fluorescence spectra between normal aorta and atheromatous plaque. Differences in the spectra were evaluated using the Hotelling trace and ROC methods. The results indicate that large spectral differences and, therefore, good classification can be obtained with illumination in the range from about 304 to 334 nm and that the performance drops off rapidly on either end of the illumination range.
