We report on the design and testing of a prototype widefield surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) imaging system based on a fiber optic bronchoscope using bandpass filters for Raman signal selection. The SERS contrast agents employed consist of gold nanoparticles encoded with a Raman-active dye and made specific for lung adenocarcinoma tissue through the use of an anti-epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) antibody. By exploiting the extremely narrow SERS spectral peaks we demonstrate a facile method of background fluorescence rejection that can be implemented at sub-video rates. The system has been tested on in-vivo tissues and performance metrics, including the maximum tissue penetration and minimum detectable nanoparticle quantity have been determined in a standardized fashion.
