Handbook of Optical Biomedical Diagnostics, Volume 1: Light-Tissue Interaction Hardback
Edited by Valery V. Tuchin
Part of the Press Monographs series
Since the publication of the first edition of the Handbook in 2002, optical methods for biomedical diagnostics have developed in many well-established directions, and new trends have also appeared.
To encompass all current methods, the text has been updated and expanded into two volumes. Volume 1: Light - Tissue Interaction features eleven chapters, five of which focus on the fundamental physics of light propagation in turbid media such as biological tissues.
The six following chapters introduce near-infrared techniques for the optical study of tissues and provide a snapshot of current applications and developments in this dynamic and exciting field.
Topics include the scattering of light in disperse systems, the optics of blood, tissue phantoms, a comparison between time-resolved and continuous-wave methods, and optoacoustics.
