DR profiles of tumor bearing mice following GNR injection.
Diffusion reflection profiles (in a semi-logarithmic scale, a.u) of healthy and tumor sites, in tumor bearing mice. Measurements were performed before the GNRs injection and 10 h post-injection. The sharpest curve is for the tumor, indicating the increase in the absorption properties of this site. The other, similar curves are for the DR measurements performed before the GNRs injection in both tumor and healthy sites (circled and diamond lines, respectively), and in the normal site after the GNRs injection (solid line).
