ABSTRACT

For the last two decades the optical method as a tool for clinical functional imaging of physiological conditions, cancer diagnostics and therapies is of great interest due to its unique informative features, simplicity, safety and low cost in contrast to conventional X-ray computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasound. However, the main limitations of the optical imaging techniques are connected with strong light scattering in tissue. Optical clearing is perspective technique for solution of the problem. However, in spite of numerous investigations, optical clearing of skin tissue has not be studied in detail. Goal of the study is to investigate of optical clearing of skin by PEG-300.
