Summary

In general, to determine the sensitivity of light transport to tissue from morphological features of clinical significance.

Determine how specific structural features contribute to light scattering. Investigate light scattering differences in tumorigenic and nontumorigenic cells.

Develop and implement quantitative and sensitive methods for measuring morphological properties.

Clinical measurements.

Description

Patients undergoing a colposcopy will also have spectroscopy measurements taken and an extra biopsy of suspicious tissue.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The examination, therapy or surgery of the cervix and vagina by means of a specially designed endoscope introduced vaginally.

A cytological test finding often from PAP SMEARS that shows abnormal lesions of SQUAMOUS EPITHELIAL CELLS of the CERVIX. It is a diagnostic criterion used in the Bethesda System for UTERINE CERVICAL NEOPLASMS and represents the PAP TEST result that is abnormal. Although squamous intraepithelial lesions test result does not mean UTERINE CERVICAL NEOPLASMS it requires follow-ups (e.g., HPV DNA TESTS; and COLPOSCOPY).

Conducting a biopsy procedure with the aid of a MEDICAL IMAGING modality.

Spectroscopy technique which measures changes in organic compounds by tracking the spectral energy of absorption of HYDROGEN atoms.

The upper part of the tooth, which joins the lower part of the tooth (TOOTH ROOT) at the cervix (TOOTH CERVIX) at a line called the cementoenamel junction. The entire surface of the crown is covered with enamel which is thicker at the extremity and becomes progressively thinner toward the cervix. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p216)
