Paper Abstract

Recently developed fiber-optic technologies have provided new capabilities for high-resolution, minimally invasive diagnosis in clinical medicine. A variety of diagnostic techniques that leverage from components developed for the telecommunications industry enable sensitive optical detection of tissue characteristics such as scattering, absorption, perfusion, birefringence and flow. This presentation will review these technologies with emphasis on in vivo imaging and clinical applications.
