Praise for the Previous Edition "... a tremendous compendium of material, covering a relatively specialized field at a very considerable depth." —Warren J. Smith, Chief Scientist Emeritus, Kaiser Electro-Optics

"Among the several available books devoted to scanning, this one is certainly the most complete." —Optics & Photonics News, April 2006

Revealing the fundamentals of light beam deflection control, factors in image fidelity and quality, and technological developments currently impacting scanner system design and applications, this second edition reviews elements of laser beam characterization and describes optical systems for laser scanners.

Diffuse Optical Tomography Principles and Applications Huabei Jiang University of Florida, Gainesville, USA

Diffuse optical tomography (DOT) can provide spatial distributions of intrinsic tissue optical properties or molecular contrast agents through model-based reconstruction algorithms using NIR measurements along or near the boundary of tissue. This book covers almost every aspect of DOT—from mathematics, reconstruction algorithms, instrumentation, and phantom experiments to clinical applications. The text covers the fundamental principles, including its mathematical foundations and computational methods, and explains how to set up experimental image systems and how to adapt laboratory study results for use in clinical applications.
