Summary Report of a Workshop on Photon Migration

  • Britton Chance

Abstract

This workshop was held in Philadelphia on April 17th, 1988 was a unique meeting, and perhaps the first meeting of many to follow focusing on a new aspect of spectroscopy in tissues, namely, the migration of photons in tissues, which are poorly resolved under conditions of continuous illumination, but clearly resolved with “time slicing” techniques in the picosecond region. The implications of these techniques for quantitative tissue spectroscopy of absorbing substances in tissue, particularly deoxy-hemoglobin, and for the imaging of hypoxic tissue volumes or tumors is predicted by the theoretical and experimental presentations at the meeting.
