This authoritative resource covers the latest advances in optical technologies for clinical medicine, providing students, teachers, researchers, and clinicians with the necessary information to solve technical and clinical challenges in optical imaging. Based upon the research and opinions of practitioners who are leaders in their respective fields, the text offers numerous examples of clinical applications, including traditional imaging modalities in clinical medicine, diagnostic imaging needs in clinical medicine, advance optical imaging approaches in dermatology and ophthalmology, high-resolution optical imaging in interventional cardiology and gastroenterology, optical mammography, and much more.
In sharing the most recent developments in optical imaging, the contributors clarify the clinical potential of these advanced technologies. Clustered by clinical application and technical content, the chapters highlight optical imaging technologies that are in early development stage, already in use, or undergoing clinical trials, such as:
Fourier domain optical coherence tomography, parallel and line field optical coherence tomography, confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy, scanning laser polarimetry, and adaptive optics for ophthalmic imaging
Optical coherence tomography and endoscopic microscopy for gastroimaging
Optical coherence tomography for cardiovascular imaging
Confocal microscopy of skin cancer
Fluorescence lifetime spectroscopy in cardio- and neuroimaging
Functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) for brain imaging
Continuous wave, frequency-domain, and time-domain systems diffuse optical tomography for breast imaging
Optoacoustic tomography for breast imaging
Laser doppler and speckle contrast imaging, optical coherence tomography, multiphoton microscopy, optoacoustic imaging, diffuse spectroscopy, and optical tomography for tissue angiogenesis
Time-domain and spectral-domain phase sensitive interferometry for functional biomedical imaging
Polarization microscopy for clinical medicine and developmental biology
Nanotechnology approaches for contrast enhancement in optical imaging and disease targeted therapy
Molecular probes for optical contrast enhancement of gastrointestinal cancers
Advances in Optical Imaging for Clinical Medicine is the reference of choice for academic and industrial researchers who want to keep track of the latest developments; clinical researchers who want to apply optical imaging to clinical problems; and educators teaching undergraduate and graduate biophotonics and biomedical optics–related courses to their students.
