Identification of Human Breast Cancer by NIR Spectroscopy and Radiorespirometry

Not rated yet

NIR spectroscopy is finding increasing application in medical fields. This book demonstrates its use, alongside radiorespirometry to identify and classify human breast tissue cancer. This book covers both results from our early research, as they form a platform for our later studies, and more recent results obtained by contemporary investigation methods. During the course of our research, there have been many improvements to our experimental practice, and much clarification of issues relating to classification analysis by NIR spectroscopy and the catabolism of variously labeled glucose.

NIR spectroscopy is finding increasing application in medical fields. This book demonstrates its use, alongside radiorespirometry, for the diagnosis of breast cancer.

Shou He Yan and Joelle Waloon provide a fascinating insight into the background of breast cancer medicine from the viewpoints of both traditional Chinese (TCM) and Western medicine. They then provide an overview of NIR spectroscopy and describe their methodology for its use in breast cancer studies.

Further detail is provided on the use of NIR spectroscopy for breast cancer identification, classification and its diagnostic utility. They conclude with a description of radiorespirometry to aid their NIR investigations related to cancer aggressiveness.
