Measuring the reflectance variation ΔR under dc magnetic field at Ar+ 0.5017-μm laser line for both corpuscle and plasma human blood samples and applying statistical processing to a 2-D display of ΔR, we can obtain useful information on whether the disease is malignant or benign. Furthermore, for indistinguishable samples within the critical region the correlation between ΔR and conventional blood-analysis parameters gives supplemental information. Applicational feasibility of these experimental results to clinical diagnosis is described together with qualitative considerations of the characteristics obtained.
