Abstract

A new optical probe which enables rapid and noninvasive measurement of the in vivo optical properties of tissues over a broad range of wavelengths is presented. The device was initially tested and calibrated in tissue-simulating phantoms whose optical properties were known to be similar to those of biological media. The technique was then applied in vivo to measure the optical properties of canine and human prostates.
