A fiber optical, UV-LED-based, spectroscopic fluorescence sensor system for diagnostic applications in dermatology has been developed and tested at excised human skin lesions. The system uses sbeen LEDs in the wavelength range 300...430 nm to excite autofluorescene of different fluorophores in human skin. Additionally, the skin's diffuse reflectance is measured by means of a tungsten halogen lamp to correct reabsorptions of the fluorescence emission in the skin itself. Moreover, the system includes a dermatoscope to...
