Abstract

We present novel technologies based on reconstructions employing diffracting sources in fluorescent mode that resolve molecular function in deep tissues. To facilitate time-efficient three-dimensional reconstructions we have employed fast analytical solutions of the diffusion equation to allow for close to real-time volumetric imaging of fluorescent near-infrared beacons that activate (fluoresce) with high specificity in the presence of specific molecular targets.
