Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Light-based technologies present unique opportunities for the diagnosis of various pathological disorders of biological tissues. With the advancement of modern science, they allow for the non-invasive identification of diseases in the early stages. The range of applications of optical technologies in clinical practice is quite wide, since the optical properties of biological tissues are subject to significant changes in the development of the disease.

This Special Issue will highlight advantages and unique aspects of the use of optical diagnostic methods in identifying and evaluating various diseases and pathological conditions. Articles may focus on the application of technology, disease, or other aspects of the use of spectroscopy and imaging in clinical practice. Articles should reflect novel innovative research and emerging ideas.
