Abstract

In vivo autofluorescence spectra were obtained in 5 patients with carcinoma in situ, 26 patients with invasive tumors, and 1 patient with severe dysplasia. Significant spectral differences were observed between pre-cancerous, cancerous, and normal bronchial tissues. This difference may afford a method to image and/or detect early lung cancer by using tissue autofluorescence alone.
