We explored the effects of probe-geometry on UV-VIS fluorescence and diffuse reflectance measurements from breast tissues. It shows that integrated fluorescence intensities measured with a multi-separation probe can be used to discriminate malignant from non-malignant tissues. This has the potential to reduce system complexity for optical diagnosis of breast cancer.
