We have employed Raman Spectroscopy for the diagnosis of breast and cervical cancer. A temperaturestabilized diode laser (Starbright, Torsana Laser Technologies) operating at 785 nm was used to record the Raman spectra of breast and cervical tissues. All the spectra were background corrected by the LabSpec software before being filtered using the commercial software Microcal Origin by taking 50 points. The differentiation between the normal and malignant tissues was investigated on the detection algorithms based on the ratio of peak intensities of representative bands. Based on the limited number of tissues of patients available to us, we got a decent percentage of sensitivity as well as specificity for the diagnosis of breast and cervical cancer.
