Momentary clinical medical imaging technologies are expensive and complex with limited sensitivity and specificity. Multimodal and molecular contrast optical imaging offers low-cost, non-invasive, accurate, rapid alternatives and the potential to address global medical needs. This symposium focuses on the combination of state-of-the-art optical imaging modalities to enable enhanced clinical diagnosis in a variety of medical fields. A special emphasis will be on approaches enabling molecular contrast as well as endoscopic imaging.
