Summary note:
Since the discovery of inelastic scattering in 1928, scientists have developed a technique to elucidate the chemical constituents of complex samples and reveal their molecular structures. The result - Raman spectroscopy - is a forerunner in biomedical applications. This Spotlight explores the technique by way of breast cancer management, including its underlying principles, pathology, etiology, screening techniques, diagnostic methods, and treatment options.
