High-resolution optical tissue imaging techniques are to provide tissue information at the molecular, cellular, and physiological levels, and have been developed for in vivo studies in biology and for diagnostic or surgical guides in several medical fields. We have been working on two high-resolution optical tissue imaging techniques, nonlinear microscopy and optical coherence tomography (OCT) for several studies in biology and medicine. In nonlinear microscopy, multiphoton microscopy and related topics have been studied for cellular, molecular imaging of various tissues of the cornea, skin, brain, and intestine. An extrinsic but clinically compatible contrast agent has been tested, and combined two-photon and coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) microscopy has been developed. In OCT, multi-functional OCT and its related techniques have been developed to provide information of tissue structure, birefringence, and vasculature. Dark-field multi-functional OCT and its combination with dermoscopy have been developed for potential clinical applications. Studies of these optical tissue imaging techniques will be presented and discussed in detail.
