An angled fiber-optic probe enabling depth-sensitive fluorescence measurements was developed for enhancing epithelial pre-cancer detection. The probe was tested on solid, two-layered phantoms, and has been proven to be effective in selectively detecting fluorescence from different layers. Monte Carlo simulation data reveal the underlying basis of the findings.
