Abstract
A digitized fluorescence endoscopic imaging (DFEI) system combined with 5-Aminolevulinic Acid (5-ALA) induced protoporphyrin IX (PPIX) was developed for the detection of neoplasms in the oral cavity and uterine-cervix. The system has the capability of producing both the digital and video fluorescence images in real time, and also quantifying the fluorescence images. The results show that using the DFEI system associated with the fluorescence image quantification method, both high sensitivity and specificity can be achieved during the head and neck, and obstetric and gynaecology clinical trials. The red fluorescence intensity distribution in the lesion area can also be obtained after digital image processing to better understand the situation of PPIX accumulation in the tissues. Furthermore, applying the intensity ratio IR/IB at red and blue wavelength regions of the tissue targeted, where IR includes the intensity of PPIX fluorescence and red tissue autofluorescence, and IB is the intensity of diffusely back-scattered excitation blue light, different histopathological grades of lesions can be classified by the DEFI system, suggesting a significant potential of the noninvasive optical biopsy for the early cancer detection.
