Biomedical Applications of Light Scattering

Essential light scattering theories, techniques, and practices. Extend tissue characterization and analysis capabilities using cutting-edge biophotonics tools and technologies. This comprehensive resource details the principles, devices, and procedures necessary to fully employ light scattering in clinical and diagnostic applications. . Biomedical Applications of Light Scattering explains how to work with biological scatterers and scattering codes, accurately model tissues and cells, build time-domain simulations, and resolve inverse scattering issues. Noninvasive biopsy procedures, precancer and disease screening methods, and fiber optic probe design techniques are also covered in this detailed volume.: Analyze light scattering spectra from complex and continuous media; Build high-resolution cellular models using FDTD and PSTD methods; Work with confocal microscopic imaging and diffuse optical tomography; Measure blood flow using laser Doppler, LSCI, and photon correlation; Perform noninvasive optical biopsies using elastic scattering techniques; Assess bulk tissue properties using differential pathlength spectroscopy; Detect precancerous lesions using angle-resolved low-coherence interferometry; Risk-stratify patients for colonoscopies using enhanced backscattering methods.
