Spectral Imaging: Methods, Design, and Applications

Y. Garini, Elad Tauber

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Spectral imaging is a relatively new field in which the advantages of optical spectroscopy as an analytical tool are combined with the power of object visualization as obtained by optical imaging; it creates a three-dimensional data set that contains many images of the same object, where each one of them is measured at a different wavelength. Biomedical applications typically require collection of complex information from tissues with minimal invasion and risk at shorter times and lower costs. This chapter will discuss the principles of spectral imaging, various optical designs, and spectral imaging analysis, while a few of the algorithms will be discussed with emphasis on the usage for different experimental modes. Different methods used for spectral imaging systems will be described as well as their advantages, limitations, and possible applications. In addition, the conceptual parts of a spectral imaging system will be described combined with brief description of the major biomedical applications.
