Abstract
Label-free multiphoton tomography based on two-photon autofluorescence, fluorescence lifetime, and second harmonic generation imaging can be supplemented by coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering. We present a compact, mobile and flexible clinical tomograph equipped with a novel detector design with multiple miniaturized detectors for individual acquisition of all four contrast mechanisms. Imaging of endogenous fluorophores, SHG-active collagen as well as nonfluorescent lipids in human skin in vivo is possible with this clinical tomograph paving the way towards in vivo histology.
