Topical issue: Clinical Biophotonics

Just released: Journal of Biophotonics - topical issue Clinical Biophotonics

Guest Editors: Henricus JCM Sterenborg, Niels Bendsoe, Katarina Svanberg

Photonics is a rapidly expanding field of technology generating a broad spectrum of new technologies, materials and components. To reach maximum impact to the society, however, it is of major importance for the photonics field to go beyond technology and component development and engage into the development of applications. This requires intense multidisciplinary interaction between clinicians and dedicated photonics researchers. The key behind a success is a long and often cumbersome path into uncharted areas of science. This topical issue deals with a variety of the newest research results within the field of biomedical optics. Examples of important and relevant studies cover diagnostics of internal and external organs, such as the mucosa of the esophagus, the urinary bladder and the oral cavity as well as for large intestine polyps and for the skin. For surgical applications, a light-guided tool is presented for improved breast cancer resection. Also, other aspects are covered such as characterization of bruised tissue in the forensic and child-abuse fields, and the therapeutic and the detection aspects of the handling of skin lesions.

Round Robin Experiment

Raman spectroscopy has already proved its effectiveness in many cases for medical diagnostics such as for cancer, cardiovascular diseases and infections. However, there are no standards in the different working groups, e.g. for sample preparation, implementation of the Raman experiments, spectra pre-treatment, data evaluation, etc.In a round robin experiment, the required groundwork will take place in order to define standardised Raman measurement methods, which will be fundamental for establishing Raman spectroscopy for clinical diagnostic procedures.
