Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL) spectroscopic imaging is a novel technique with many potential applications to
histopathology. Like traditional Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) imaging, QCL spectroscopic imaging derives
biochemical data coupled to the spatial information of a tissue sample, and can be used to improve the diagnostic and
prognostic value of assessment of a tissue biopsy. This technique also offers advantages over traditional FT-IR imaging,
specifically the capacity for discrete frequency and real-time imaging. In this work we present applications of QCL
spectroscopic imaging to tissue samples, including discrete frequency imaging, to compare with FT-IR and its potential
value to pathology.
