A flexible fibre optical probe is implemented to record the parameters of the endogenous fluorescence during minimally invasive interventions in patients with cancers of hepatoduodenal area. Using machine learning techniques, the obtained spectra are classified to indicate cancerous or healthy tissue. For this, a set of different binary classifiers has been trained and tested. The classifiers showing best performance for this task are identified.
