Abstract

Bio-photonics have made substantial progress for biology and the life sciences and, to date, are primarily used in preclinical research. There is however emerging field of clinical application i.e. Raman Spectroscopy & confocal microscopy in the field of skin & mucosal cancer & gastrointestinal endoscopy.Such novel embodiments of these techniques are targeting image guided interstitial applications with probes and combination of OCT, Raman with imaging modalities MRI,PET/CT & US are promising.
