Diffuse optical imaging offers unique capabilities for measuring functional (e.g. hemoglobin concentration, oxygenation or water content) and structural (e.g. nuclear density) parameters in living tissues. In particular, while compromising on resolution, diffuse optical imaging can perform measurements over very large fields of view, in depth and/or in real-time. Altogether, it enables the exploration of novel areas in medicine where time and field-of-view are strong constraints. This session will review the recent efforts in imaging methods, processing algorithms and their application to solve longstanding clinical problems.
