High-resolution optical imaging technologies have rapidly gained importance, and a range of antibody-specific fluorescent biomarkers have driven new insights in disease mechanisms. However, optical techniques degrade rapidly in solid tissue due to absorption and multiple scattering of the photons, limiting their imaging depth and largely restricting their use to cell culture. To overcome this limit, we have been developing a series of multi-modal minimally-invasive imaging probes.
