Handbook of Biomedical Optics

David A. Boas, Constantinos Pitris and Nimmi Ramanujam, eds.

CRC Press, 2011; $149.95 (hardcover).


This excellent reference provides comprehensive coverage of the recent developments in biomedical optics. It is intended to be used as a resource for scientists and graduate students in biomedical engineering and optics.
In addition to background information on classical optics, irradiation guidelines and tissue optical properties, this book offers a thorough treatment of tomographic and microscopic imaging technologies.. This outstanding handbook also addresses spectroscopy in connection with multi/hyper spectral imaging techniques, photodynamic therapy and nanotechnologies within the context of molecular probe development. The reader will also benefit from an extensive bibliography.
