You are here highlights InSPECT spectral sensing development for fast tissue diagnosis at low-cost

InSPECT (from Integrated Spectrometers for Spectral Tissue Sensing) aims to facilitate the integration of miniaturized spectral sensing devices for clinically useful tissue analysis. Minimally invasive image-guided surgical procedures enable clinicians to identify cancerous tumors or other medical conditions.

The InSPECT consortium is designing a miniature broadband LED-based light source emitting across the visible, near- and short-wave infrared ranges, from 400 to 1700 nanometers. It is also developing a novel low-cost broadband spectrometer platform, allowing techniques based around the new source to translate more smoothly into clinical environments than current instrumental systems may allow.
