Hyperspectral imaging—the collection of images with spectral data in each pixel—has proved its worth in many data-gathering applications, from environmental sensing and agricultural crop monitoring to food inspection and art conservation. But can this technique aid scientists working at the opposite end of the size scale: searching for problems with tiny human cells and their components?
