Abstract
An attempt is made to survey optical testing methods currently being investigated for biological research and/or clinical diagnostics. The notation "optics" is used in a broad sense, i.e., for wavelengths in which the flow of electromagnetic energy can be modified with mirrors, lenses and/or gratings. The reviewed optical testing methods are based either on the change of the prop.gation p rameters of the electromagnetic radiation or on the fact that optical radiation is provoking changes in the material to be tested and the resulting signals not necessarily of optical n ture are used for rating. When and how optical testing methods used already in engineering are applicable to biomedical testing is also discussed.
