Abstract

The application of optical methods for biomedical applications and clinical therapeutics is emerging as a new technological paradigm (Wilson et al. 2005). Optical techniques for tissue diagnosis that are currently being developed offer significant advantages over standard biopsy and cytology techniques, in terms of both patient care and medical costs (Mourant et al. 1998). A good understanding of the relationship between the biochemical and morphological structure of cells and light scattering will assist the development of diagnostic applications in nanophotonics (Dunn and Kortum, 1996). Many light-based and spectroscopic techniques are already being practiced in medical and other health-care fields.
