goals

The students have insight into the interaction of light with biomedical tissue. They understand different approaches for optical imaging of biological tissue and know the fundamentals of optical treatment of deseases.

content

The lecture with integrated exercises will cover the fundamentals of light-biological tissue interaction. Instrumentation for biomedical optics will be discussed. The main part of the lecture concerns concepts for imaging biomedical tissue including microscopy and diverse optical tomography approaches. Finally, concepts for treatment of deseases with optical means (e.g. laser surgery) will be presented.
