The Journal of Biomedical Optics (JBO) publishes peer-reviewed papers on the use of modern optical technology for improved health care and biomedical research.

The Journal of Biomedical Optics (JBO) publishes peer-reviewed papers on the use of modern optical technology for improved health care and biomedical research. Recent growth in the use of optics technology for biomedical research and health care has been explosive. New applications are made possible by emerging technologies in lasers, optoelectronic devices, fiber optics, physical and chemical sensors, and imaging, all of which are being applied to medical research, diagnostics, and therapy. Topics suitable for JBO include:

  • Medical and biological imaging instrumentation and techniques
  • Noninvasive physiological monitoring
  • Laser-tissue interactions and dosimetry 
  • Laser diagnostic and laser therapeutic methods, instruments, and systems 
  • Ophthalmic instruments, systems, implants, and clinical applications
  • Optical biosensors
  • Ultrasensitive detection and optical clinical chemistry
  • Optical tomography and photon migration
  • Endoscopic systems and applications
  • Biospectroscopy and optoelectronic instrumentation 
  • Fiber optic sensors, instrumentation, and techniques 
  • Optical and structural microscopy 
  • Applications of optical systems and technologies to biology and medicine
