This book addresses the cutting-edge work in non-invasive optical biomedical spectroscopic methods for detecting the onset and progression of diseases and other conditions, especially in neurophotonics. In addition to overviewing the different spectroscopic methods and their potential benefits for solving diagnostic and therapeutic problems, the spectroscopic properties of tissue and tissue–light interaction are revealed in imaging on advanced nanoscale structures.

This book is an indispensable resource for researchers in optics, photonics, neuroscience, neurophotonics, biophotonics, oncology, physics and biomedical engineering, as well as clinicians in pediatric neurosurgery and neuro-oncology. It is also an essential reference for graduate students and new investigators in the neurophotonics fields.
