  • I am developing a mathematical model using an optical fluorescence and reflectance spectroscopy system which can differentiate between tumour and normal breast tissue. This system enables real-time acquisition and data analysis of time-domain laser-induced fluorescence and diffuse reflectance spectra from which we can extract optical properties. If we can also differentiate between healthy tissue and other tumour types, then we can incorporate the algorithms that we built into technology that could be used in clinical or surgical settings for healthy/tumour margin-detection.
