Optical imaging modalities use near-infrared light to infer scattering and absorption coefficients, and hence, the presence of structures within tissues. Fluorescence markers, which accumulate in specific regions, can be used to monitor functional and metabolic activity in small animals. These are mostly used to detect tumours, monitor progression of disease, response to therapy, gene expression and protein-protein interactions.
