Examples of multi-modal spectral histopathology (MSH) measurements of whole breast conserving surgery (BCS) specimens for which histopathological examination identified negative margins. a-d MSH detected no tumor on the surface of 80% of specimens declared clear by histopathological examination. Distances from the measured margin to tumor are marked with green arrows. e MSH detected tumor although only lactation adenoma (LA) was found within 100 μm of the measured surface in sections sampled by histopathological examination
