A wide variety of biomedical photonic technologies have been developed recently for clinical monitoring of early disease states; molecular diagnostics and imaging of physiological parameters; molecular and genetic biomarkers; and detection of the presence of pathological organisms or biochemical species of clinical importance. However, available information on this rapidly growing field is fragmented among a variety of journals and specialized books. Now researchers and medical practitioners have an authoritative and comprehensive source for the latest research and applications in biomedical photonics. Over 150 leading scientists, engineers, and physicians discuss state-of-the-art instrumentation, methods, and protocols in the Biomedical Photonics Handbook. Editor-in-Chief Tuan Vo-Dinh and an advisory board of distinguished scientists and medical experts ensure that each of the 65 chapters represents the latest and most accurate information currently available.When compared with other drugs such as HP, it shows about the same demarcation potential, whereas Photofrin and PHE exhibit about 3 ... Employing the endogenous tissue fluorescence signature enhanced the contrast by a factor of about two for each of the five drugs.131 In ... have also been performed to verify and quantify the ability of these drugs for tumor demarcation in different types of tissues.
