    The Present and Future of Optical Imaging Technologies in the Clinic: Diagnosis and Therapy

    Medical techniques based upon optical imaging technologies are important tools in clinical practice. The use of optical imaging in medical diagnosis is well established, and a large array of techniques are in current use, such as white light endoscopy, autofluorescence imaging, and optical coherence tomography. The applications of these techniques are expanding, and newer imaging technologies are becoming available to address problems and limitations associated with existing methods. Beyond diagnostics, optical imaging is increasingly a useful component of interventional medical procedures, such as image-guided surgery. In procedures such as surgical tumor resection, fluorescence imaging can aid surgeons in improving both ...
