MetadataShow full item record
Biomedical Optical Imaging is edited by two eminent and distinguished educator-scientists. Professor James G. Fujimoto is with the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and also an adjunct professor of ophthalmology at the Tufts New England Medical Center. Professor Daniel L. Farkas is the vice chairman for research in the Department of Surgery and the director of the Minimally Invasive Surgical Technologies Institute at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles; he is also a research professor in biomedical engineering at the University of Southern California and an adjunct professor with the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. The editors designated eminent researchers and their colleagues to contribute chapters on the application of optical imaging to the field of biomedicine. The editors state that their choice of topics in this book is focused mainly on reviewing technologies that are currently used in research, industry, or medicine, rather than those that are being developed. The interests of the editors and the space limitations of a 400-page book limited the scope of the chapter selections; other editors would have provided a different table of contents. Notably there are no chapters that cover the modern important advances in photoacoustic imaging.
