Optical imaging is a rapidly emerging imaging technique that has been successfjully translated into biomedical applications ranging from clinical diagnosis to molecular biology. This book includes an introductory section to explore various optical imaging devices and their functionality and roles for biomedical applications such as dermatology and ophthalmology. Recent developments as exemplified with the authors research are explored in detail. In depth discussion of other disease conditions and their diagnosis with optical imaging techniques are also covered.
