Time-resolved fluorescence offers new way to 'see' oral cancer
Researchers from the University of California-Davis are conducting in vivo experiments of a noninvasive, laser-based device that could aid in the early detection of oral and head and neck cancers. Laura Marcu, Ph.D., a professor of biomedical engineering at UC Davis, collaborated with Dr. D. Gregory Farwell and others in the Department of Otolaryngology at the UC Davis Cancer Center to develop the fiber-optic probe, which uses time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy to provide molecular information of the tissue being imaged.
