Platform technology for spectroscopic tissue identification in pathology and surgical oncology applications

Frederic Leblond, PhD
Department of Engineering Physics Polytechnique, Montreal Canada

I will describe recent developments in my laboratory that led to the development and clinical translation of optical spectroscopy (diffuse reflectance, fluorescence and vibrational spectroscopy) instruments to guide surgical procedures including the resection of brain tumors and molecularly-targeted brain needle biopsies. Other work will be presented using optical spectroscopy for prostate tissue characterization and prostate cancer detection during radical prostatectomy procedures, as well as diagnostic and prognostication approaches for improved prostate cancer patient stratification using Raman microspectroscopy.
