The results show that by using the probe configuration with a beveled tip collection fiber and a flat tip excitation fiber associated with a ball lens, discrimination of fluorescence signals generated in different tissue depths is achievable. In comparison with a flat-tip collection fiber, the use of a large bevel angled collection fiber enables a better differentiation between the shallow and deep tissue layers by changing the excitation-collection fiber separations. This work suggests that the beveled fiber-optic probe coupled with a ball lens has the potential to facilitate depth-resolved fluorescence measurements of epithelial tissues. © 2008 Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine.||Source Title:||Physics in Medicine and Biology||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/66942||ISSN:||00319155||DOI:||10.1088/0031-9155/53/4/008|
