Identifying injuries, deformities, and diseases by non-invasive instrumental means has been a major innovation in medicine. Diagnostic and imaging medical devices have revolutionized diagnosis and surgery, providing more efficient way to identify injuries and diseased or damaged tissues. In this paper, identification of different animal tissues using a miniature near-infrared (NIR) spectrometer will be demonstrated. Each tissue type contains different amounts of moisture and proteins, and by using this miniature spectrometer, a miniature fiber-optic probe and chemometrics; the ability to recognize tissues spectral differences is established.
