Editorial Reviews

A dozen papers from an impromptu one-day workshop in Philadelphia, April 1988, explore a new technique of using picosecond-range laser pulses on tissue and animal models and on humans to investigate the movement of light within tissue; and predict the technique's application to the quantitative tissue spectroscopy of absorbing substances in tissue, particularly deoxy-hemoglobin, and to the imaging of hypoxic tissue volumes or tumors.
