Short Description

This entry-level textbook, covering the area of tissue optics, is based on the lecture notes for a graduate course (Bio-optical Imaging) that has been taught six times by the authors at Texas A&M University. After the fundamentals of photon transport in biological tissues are established, Biomedical Optics covers various optical imaging techniques for biological tissues. Imaging modalities covered include ballistic imaging, quasi-ballistic imaging (optical coherence tomography), diffusion imaging, and ultrasound-aided hybrid imaging. The basic physics and engineering of each imaging technique are emphasized.

The premier comprehensive reference on biomedical optics for practitioners and students

Biophotonics is a rapidly growing field with applications in medicine, genetics, biology, agriculture, and environmental science.?Written by respected experts, Biomedical Optics: Principles and Imaging is the first thorough reference and textbook on the subject. It covers:
*

The fundamentals of photon transport in biological tissues, including explanations of Rayleigh and Mie scattering, Monte Carlo simulations, the radiative transport equation, and more
*

Various optical imaging techniques for biological tissues, including ballistic or quasi-ballistic imaging (such as confocal microscopy, two-photon microscopy, and optical coherence tomography), diffuse imaging (such as DC, time-domain techniques, and frequency-domain techniques), and ultrasound-aided hybrid imaging (including photoacoustic tomography and ultrasound-modulated optical tomography)
*

The basic physics and engineering of each imaging modality

Complete with equation derivations, examples, and case studies plus a constantly updated Web site featuring an established Monte Carlo program, other sample programs, tables and figures, and more, this is a great reference for practitioners. With an instructor's solutions manual and problems for students to complete, it's an excellent textbook for upper-level undergraduates or graduate students.
