Abstract

A pilot clinical study on ten female volunteers is reported using our multi-channel frequency-domain optical imager. Seven of these patients were previously identified with tumors or microcalcifications by x-ray and/or ultrasound mammography. These tumors had a size between 5 and 38 mm. Using our optical imager and reconstruction methods we were able to detect all tumors that had been identified by x-ray and/or ultrasound mammography. The quantification of our improved scattering images shows a clear differentiation between benign and malignant tumors. A comparison between our results and x-ray/ultrasound results is also given.
