Spectral Cytopathulogy - A New Dimension In The Field Of Diagnostic Pathology

Pragati P Karmarkar

Abstract


Spectral cytopathology ( SCP ) is a method of analysing the biochemical makeup of human squamous cells using infrared microspectroscopy ( IR-MSP land multivariate data analysis. These unique spectral patterns are used to detect cells compromised at the molecular level by dysplasia, neoplasia, or viral infections. Owing to its sensitivity to molecular changes, SCP often can detect the onset of disease earlier than is currently possible by cytopathology visualization. Therefore SCP shows potential as a complementary tool in medical cytopathology. Keywords: Spectral, Cytopathology
