Abstract

Steady-state fluorescence spectra and excitation spectra from native human normal and malignant tumor breast tissues have been measured and analyzed. Two types of spectra from normal tissues have been found and discussed. The statistics of the fluorescence results are given, and the reasons for false negative, false positive, and equivocal results are presented.
