Prostate cancer (PCa) is the most common cancer form for men in Europe. A sensor system combining Raman spectroscopy and stiffness sensing with a resonance sensor has recently been developed by us for prostate cancer detection. In this study the sensor system has been used for measurements on two slices of fresh human prostate tissue. The stiffness sensor could detect locations slices with significantly different stiffness contrasts (p < 0.05). Raman spectroscopic measurements could be performed with the dual-modality probe for tissue classification. The findings are important for the continued development of a combination probe for prostate cancer detection.
