Human prostate in-vitro tissues were studied using near IR spectral polarization imaging. Different imaging methods using the light scattered or emitted from prostates tissues and contrast agents were performed on various model samples, which consisted of a small piece of absorber or prostate tissue dyed with indocayanine green embedded inside a large piece of prostate tissue at different depths. Small foreign objects with a diameter of approximately 1 mm hidden inside the host prostate tissues at depths of 3.0 mm, 4.5 mm, and 8.5 mm were imaged and identified using the scattering light, tissue emission wing and contrast agent emission light imaging methods, respectively.
