> 5. Multimodal and Multispectral approaches

Chairs: Dan Zhu, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, China, Walter Blondel, University of Lorraine, Nancy, France (coordinators)

Ekaterina Borisova, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Sofia, Bulgaria, Elena Zagaynova, Privolzhsky research medical University, Nizhny Novgorod, Russia, Dick Sterenborg, Netherlands Cancer Institute and Amsterdam University Medical Center, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Irving Bigio, Boston University, USA

This session is devoted to recent advances and technological developments of multimodal and multispectral optical spectro-imaging methods applied to spatial and spectral quantitative characterization of biological tissues in vivo, with emphasis on clinical applications. Spectroscopic and imaging modalities shall include, but not limited to: elastic and inelastic (Raman) scattering, diffuse reflectance, intrinsic and extrinsic fluorescence.
