    Biophotonics: Pushes the Boundaries of Radiology

    Biophotonics — the development and application of optical techniques for the study of biological molecules, cells and tissue — is expanding the scope of radiology by bringing clinicians and researchers new tools for noninvasive imaging of cancer and other diseases. While the x-rays and gamma rays commonly used in imaging represent highenergy light sources, biophotonics typically relies on sources at the lower end of the energy spectrum like infrared, near infrared, visible and ultraviolet light. This lower energy light helps preserve the biological cells examined even as the optical equipment visualizes structures too small to be seen with x-ray, CT and MRI ...
