Description…

Low-coherence enhanced backscattering (LEBS) is a technique that has recently shown promise for tissue characterization and the detection of early pre-cancer. LEBS enables depth-selective spectroscopic assessment of mucosal tissue. Preliminary resesarch shows that pre-cancerous and benign mucosal tissues have different small length scale light transport properties.
