Main description

The latest advances in quantitative phase imaging techniques and their applications for studying cells and tissues, Quantitative Phase Imaging of Cells and Tissues thoroughly explores the many quantitative phase imaging techniques (non-destructive bio sampling), discussing merits and demerits of each technique. The book is a professional reference written for optical scientists specializing in microscopic imaging, biological optics researchers, and molecular biologists. Quantitative Phase Imaging of Cells and Tissues Features over 50 unique and rare images taken by advanced QPI microscopy. The book discusses biomedical applications of QPI Comprehensive coverage: Traditional Microscopy; Principles of Quantitative Phase Imaging; Scanning QPI Techniques; Full-field OQI techniques; Applications of static QPI; Applications of Dynamic QPI; Fourier Transform Light Scattering (FTLS); Applications of Fourier Transform Light Scattering; Current trends in both methods and applications.
