Main description

Cutting-edge in vivo imaging technologies and diagnostic techniques

In Vivo Clinical Imaging and Diagnosis features full-color, high-resolution images and describes optical imaging and diagnostic systems in development for in vivo use. Written by renowned experts in the field, this pioneering work contains comprehensive details on the latest breakthroughs in microscopic imaging techniques, macroscopic and wide-field imaging, and clinical spectroscopy.

Coverage includes:

  • In vivo confocal reflectance microscopy of skin
  • In vivo microendoscopy
  • Optical coherence tomography of the eye
  • Optical coherence tomography in cardiology, gastroenterology, and pulmonary applications
  • In vivo photoacoustic tomography
  • In vivo spectral imaging from the laboratory to the clinic
  • Clinical diffuse optical imaging: techniques and applications
  • Clinical applications of UV-VIS optical spectroscopy in head and neck, breast, and cervical cancers
  • Near-infrared diffuse optical spectroscopic imaging of breast cancer
  • Raman spectroscopy diagnosis of breast cancer and atherosclerosis
