Abstract
Acoustic and optical multiple contrast microscopy has been employed in order to explore characterizable parameters of red blood cells, including cells infected by the parasite Plasmodium falciparum, in order to investigate cellular modifications caused by the infection and to identify possible detection schemes for disease monitoring. Imaging schemes were based on fluorescence, optical transmission, optical reflection, and amplitude and phase of ultrasound reflected from the cells. Contrast variations observed in acoustic microscopy, but not in optical microscopy, were tentatively ascribed to changes caused by the infection.
