Light can interact with tissue in dierent ways and probing this interaction can yield information about the state of tissue with respect to its physiology as well as pathology. e use of ber optics allows applications of optical techniques in tissue to be performed remotely and with minimal damage. Since tissue response is virtually instantaneous, the results are obtained in real time, and the use of data processing techniques allows for automated detection of disease. ese properties have resulted in a variety of applications where optical techniques have been used for tissue diagnosis.
