Detecting Changes in the Cervix with Raman Spectroscopy
American Institute of Physics Conference Series
Cervical cancer is the second commonest cancer in women worldwide. Over the last decade, our lab has used in vivo Raman spectroscopy to identify dysplastic areas of the cervix to provide automated, real-time diagnosis. Raman spectra has been acquired from the cervix of over 200 women to test the hypothesis that Raman spectroscopy will be able to detect normal areas and areas of metaplasia, low grade and high-grade dysplasia.
