Abstract
This work aims to apply a fiber-optic Raman spectroscopy technique for in vivo assessment of adenomatous polyps during clinical colonoscopy. We have developed a fiber-optic Raman endoscopic technique capable of simultaneously acquiring both the fingerprint (FP) (i.e., 800–1800 cm-1) and high-wavenumber (HW) (i.e., 2800–3600 cm-1) Raman spectra for real-time assessment of colorectal carcinogenesis. Simultaneous FP/HW Raman endoscopy provides a diagnostic sensitivity of 90.9% and specificity of 83.3% for differentiating adenoma from hyperplastic polyps, which is superior to either the FP or HW Raman technique alone. This study shows that simultaneous FP/HW Raman spectroscopy has the potential for improving early diagnosis of adenomatous polyps in vivo during colonoscopic examination.
