Fluorescence spectroscopy for biomedical diagnostics


Book Section

© 2003 by CRC Press LLC. In the past several decades, fluorescence spectroscopy has had a dramatic effect on many different fields of research. One field that has seen significant advancements is biomedical diagnostics. Within this field, fluorescence spectroscopy has been applied to the analysis of many different types of samples, ranging from individual biochemical species (e.g., NADH, tryptophan) to organs of living people. These studies have given rise to new methods for the early or noninvasive diagnosis of various medical conditions, including tooth decay, atherosclerosis, heart arrhythmia, cancer, and many others.
