Abstract
The lung is one of the most common sites of metastases, with approximately 50% of patients with extrathoracic cancer exhibiting pulmonary metastases. Correct identification of the metastatic status of a lung lesion is vital to therapeutic planning and better prognosis. However, currently available diagnostic techniques, such as conventional radiography and low dose computed tomography (LDCT), may fail to identify metastatic lesions. Alternative techniques such as Raman spectroscopy (RS) are hence being extensively explored for correct diagnosis of metastasis. The current
