Fluorescence Imaging and Point Measurements of Tissue - Applications To the Demarcation of Malignant-tumors and Atherosclerotic Lesions From Normal Tissue

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The possibilities of using laser-induced fluorescence for tissue diagnostics are discussed. The tissue types investigated are malignant tumors and atherosclerotic lesions. Studies with natural autofluorescence as well as with fluorescent tumor markers are included in this paper. Fluorescence emission and decay data are presented for some tissue chromophores contributing to tissue autofluorescence. Optical spectroscopic characteristics of fluorescent malignant tumor markers are analyzed and instrumental designs for clinical applications are discussed. Images recorded with a multicolor fluorescence imaging system developed in Lund are presented.
