Abstract
A new approach to improving the diagnostic value of optical methods is suggested, which is based on a complementary investigation of different optical parameters of biotissues. The aim of this paper is comparative study of the feasibility of two optical methods - fluorescence spectroscopy and optical coherence tomography - for visualization of borders of neoplastic processes in the uterine cervix and vulva. Fluorescence spectroscopy is based on the detection of biochemical and optical coherence tomography on backscattering properties in norm and pathological changes of tissues. By means of these optical methods changes in biochemical and morphological properties of tissues were investigated. A parallel analysis of these two optical methods and histology from the center of tumors and their optical borders was made. Thirteen female patients with neoplastic changes in uterine cervix and vulva were enrolled in this study. The borders of the tumor determined by optical methods (fluorescence spectroscopy and optical coherence tomography) are coinciding with the biopsy proved ones. In addition, OCT and fluorescence borders of tumor in the uterine cervix and vulva exceeds colposcopically detectable borders, the averaging difference 2 mm. In future optical methods would considerably enhance diagnostic accuracy of conventional methods used in oncogynecology.
