Abstract
The mid-infrared wavelength region contains characteristic peaks of several of the biochemical constituents of tissue. Recently, it has been shown that measurements of mammalian cell suspensions can provide estimates of biochemical composition and consequently information on the growth stage. This information may be used to identify cancerous tissue in-vivo. To facilitate the development of an in-vivo diagnostic technique, we have performed simulations of photon propagation and light collection in epithelial tissue, given a specific optical probe geometry.
