We discuss the implementation of wavelength-swept coherent Raman scattering (CRS) microscopy for the rapid acquisition of hyperspectral datacubes. We highlight two multivariate analysis approaches for efficiently generating spectroscopic maps from the acquired data: principal component analysis (PCA), which is a popular method for extracting information from multidimensional datasets, and vertex component analysis (VCA), which has previously been successfully used for the analysis of spontaneous Raman microscopy data. Through several biomedical imaging examples, we discuss the advantages and disadvantages of these approaches for CRS microscopy.

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.
