Written by pioneers in the field, this first-of-its-kind resource on multimodal optical imaging provides you with a rigorous treatment of the various techniques together with the latest clinical advances in cancer detection and other important applications. You find full details on the principles, instrumentation, and methods of in vivo microscopy, optical coherence tomography, endoscopy, and diffuse optical techniques. Supported with 119 illustrations, this milestone work: discusses key optical imaging techniques in self-contained chapters; describes the integration of optical imaging techniques with other modalities like MRI, X-ray imaging, and PET imaging; provides a software platform for multimodal integration; presents cutting-edge computational and data processing techniques that ensure rapid, cost-effective, and precise quantification and characterization of the clinical data; covers advances in photodynamic therapy and molecular imaging, and reviews key clinical studies in optical imaging along with regulatory and business issues.
