28 February 2011 A multispectral FLIM tomograph for in-vivo imaging of skin cancer
Author Affiliations +
To aid the in vivo diagnosis of skin lesions, we present the design and implementation of a 4 channel FLIM detector and a hyperspectral imaging detector into a clinically licensed commercial two-photon tomograph. We have also implemented image segmentation algorithms to facilitate the automated processing of the large volumes of data produced. The first detector is based on multispectral time correlated single photon counting, providing four channel fluorescence lifetime images. The second detector is a prism-based CCD hyperspectral imager. These detectors provide the capability to extract the relative content and state of autofluorescence compounds present in biological tissue.
