Spatially-resolved multiply-excited autofluorescence and diffuse reflectance spectroscopy: SpectroLive medical device for skin in vivo optical biopsy

Abstract : This contribution presents the development of an optical spectroscopy device, called SpectroLive, that allows spatially-resolved multiply-excited autofluorescence and diffuse reflectance measurements. Besides describing the device, this study aims at presenting the metrological and safety regulation validations performed towards its aimed application to skin carcinoma in vivo diagnosis. This device is made of six light sources and four spectrometers for detection of the back-scattered intensity spectra collected through an optical probe (made of several optical fibers) featuring four source-to-detector separations (from 400 to 1000 µm). In order to be allowed by the French authorities to be evaluated in clinics, the SpectroLive device was successfully checked for electromagnetic compatibility and electrical and photobiological safety. In order to process spectra, spectral correction and metrological calibration were implemented in the post-processing software. Finally, we characterized the device’s sensitivity to autofluorescence detection: excitation light irradiance at the optical probe tip in contact with skin surface ranges from 2 to 11 W/m², depending on the light source. Such irradiances combined to sensitive detectors allow the device to acquire a full spectroscopic sequence within 6 s which is a short enough duration to be compatible with optical-guided surgery. All these results about sensitivity and safety make the SpectroLive device mature enough to be evaluated through a clinical trial that aims at evaluating its diagnostic accuracy for skin carcinoma diagnosis.
