Label-free in vivo optical imaging of microvasculature and oxygenation level.
Journal Article (Letter)
The ability to perform high-resolution imaging of microvasculature and its oxygenation is very important in studying early tumor development. Toward this goal, we improved upon our excited state absorption (ESA)-based imaging technique to allow us to not only image hemoglobin directly but also differentiate between oxy- and deoxyhemoglobin in tissue. We demonstrate the separation of arterioles from venules in a live nude mouse ear using our imaging technique.
