  • Represents the first publication dedicated solely to optical diagnostics and therapeutics in the brain
  • Provides a comprehensive review of the principles of each imaging/therapeutic modality
  • Reviews the latest advances in instrumentation for optical diagnostics in the brain
  • Discusses new optical-based therapeutic approaches for brain diseases

This book provides a comprehensive up-to-date review of optical approaches used in brain imaging and therapy. It covers a variety of imaging techniques including diffuse optical imaging, laser speckle imaging, photoacoustic imaging and optical coherence tomography. A number of laser-based therapeutic approaches are reviewed, including photodynamic therapy, fluorescence guided resection and photothermal therapy. Fundamental principles and instrumentation are discussed for each imaging and therapeutic technique.
