Provides the first comprehensive look at a flourishing area at the intersection of technology and medicine Defines the field of biomedical photonics for all academic, governmental, and industrial researchers Covers optical techniques for diagnosis, therapy, and prevention of disease Provides introductory material in each chapter, including an overview of the topic, a collection of published data, and an extensive list of references for further reading Includes optical detection technologies used in DNA and protein sequencing, gene diagnostics, and gene expression Examines aspects of analytical chemistry and molecular biology important to biomedical diagnostics and therapy Compiles useful information on spectroscopic data of biologically and medically relevant species for over 1000 compounds and systems in the Appendix Offers bibliographic citations from hundreds of peer-reviewed scientific sources and journals Includes over 1500 pages with thousands of diagrams, illustrations, figures, photographs, and equations INSIDE A wide variety of biomedical photonic technologies have been developed recently for clinical monitoring of early disease states; molecular diagnostics and imaging of physiological parameters; molecular and genetic biomarkers; and detection of the presence of pathological organisms or biochemical species of clinical importance. However, available information on this rapidly growing field is fragmented among a variety of journals and specialized books. Now researchers and medical practitioners have an authoritative and comprehensive source for the latest research and applications in biomedical photonics. Over 150 leading scientists, engineers, and physicians discuss state-of-the-art instrumentation, methods, and protocols in the Biomedical Photonics Handbook. Editor-in-Chief Tuan Vo-Dinh and an advisory board of distinguished scientists and medical experts ensure that each of the 65 chapters represents the latest and
