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.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
