Recently microendoscopes are being developed as a tool to detection cancer or pre-cancerous lesions in the milk ducts of the human breast. The microendoscope can be inserted into the duct through the nipple. Integration of fluorescence spectroscopy into microendoscopy can provide an improved platform for real-time cancer detection followed by immediate intervention. Typically, the optical fibers employed by existing microendoscope systems transmit in the 450 to 900 nm range. A prototype system combining fluorescence spectroscopy with visible imaging by microendoscopy is described and preliminary measurements on ex vivo human breast tissues are presented. Image resolution and distortion are discussed.
