Abstract
Two systems for time-resolved diffuse spectroscopy were used for the optical characterization of the female breast in 4 volunteers. A first system was a compact laser diode instrument operated at 660 and 785 nm, while the second one was a broadband laboratory set-up based on mode-locked lasers tunable in the 610-1000 nm range. Measurements were obtained both in transmittance and in reflectance geometry at 5 inter-fiber distances ranging from I to 4 cm at different locations on the breast. Distinct spectral features both in absorption and in scattering were observed among the 4 volunteers, and for each subject between reflectance and transmittance measurements. These differences are correlated with the abundance of the glandular tissue and... (More)

These differences are correlated with the abundance of the glandular tissue and blood absorption. Upon increasing, the inter-fiber distance in reflectance, deeper tissue structures were investigated, generally resulting in higher water contribution. (Less)
