Abstract

We determined the optical properties of the human prostate, in vivo, over multiple wavelengths for 6 men, in an outpatient setting. Analysis of these data reveal reliable determination of the optical properties in the 650 - 800 nm range, however, values in the shorter wavelengths (400 - 625 nm) were not interpretable due to a low signal to noise ratio. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of the optical properties i.e. reduced scattering coefficient [μ s (cm -1)], absorption coefficient [μ a (cm -1)], and penetration depth [δ (cm)], for the in vivo human prostate over multiple wavelengths in the white light spectrum.
