The polarization preservation property of Cardio Green dye and the fluorescence-polarization-difference-imaging (FPDI) technique are introduced to enhance the image quality of an object embedded inside tissues. The spatial FWHM resolution and contrast of the resulted fluorescence polarization difference image were found to be higher than that of the conventional non-polarized optical images by factors of 2.3 and 3.6, respectively.
