An integrated system intended to serve as a general purpose optical imaging platform was described for the investigation of time-varying hemoglobin states and vascular reactivity in large tissue structures. The results of a time-series imaging study performed on a tumor-bearing and tumor-free breast of a subject diagnosed with a large ductal carcinoma was presented. Analysis of the time series provided evidence that unlike the coherent response of the tumor-free breast, the temporal dynamics of the tumor-bearing breast was largely incoherent.
