Fluorescent analysis of basal cell carcinoma (BCC), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), keratoacanthoma and benign cutaneous lesions is carried out under initial phase of clinical trial in the National Oncological Center – Sofia. Excitation sources with maximum of emission at 365, 380, 405, 450 and 630 nm are applied for better differentiation between non-melanoma malignant cutaneous lesions fluorescence and spectral discrimination from the benign pathologies. Major spectral features are addressed and diagnostic discrimination algorithms based on lesions’ emission properties are proposed. The diagnostic algorithms and evaluation procedures found will be applied for development of an optical biopsy clinical system for skin cancer detection in the frames of National Oncological Center and other university hospital dermatological departments in our country.
