Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We report the development of a diagnostic system combining time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy and ultrasound backscatter microscopy and its application in diagnosis of tumors and atherosclerotic disease. This system allows for concurrent evaluation of distinct compositional, functional, and micro-anatomical features of normal and diseased tissues.
