Tissue Optics III - Advanced Tissue Optics for Physical Scientists

Author(s): Martin J.  Leahy

This course is the sequel to Tissue Optics II. Its objectives are to provide an understanding of the fundamentals of light propagation through turbid media (such as tissue) and to provide an understanding of basic tissue optical properties and how to measure them. Furthermore this tutorial gives an introduction to computer modelling of light propagation in tissues and provides forward reading on all of the above topics for further in-depth reading.

Round Robin Experiment

Raman spectroscopy has already proved its effectiveness in many cases for medical diagnostics such as for cancer, cardiovascular diseases and infections. However, there are no standards in the different working groups, e.g. for sample preparation, implementation of the Raman experiments, spectra pre-treatment, data evaluation, etc.In a round robin experiment, the required groundwork will take place in order to define standardised Raman measurement methods, which will be fundamental for establishing Raman spectroscopy for clinical diagnostic procedures.
