Handbook of Tissue Optical Clearing

The book—subtitled “New Prospects in Optical Imaging”—is unique in bringing together a number of diverse tissue optical clearing (TOC) topics, such as 3D imaging and the combination of TOC and optical imaging/spectroscopy for diagnostics, and presenting it all at a level suitable for graduate students in biophysics and engineering. This task is accomplished with an emphasis on both methodology and applications. I found the description of these basic biophotonics techniques particularly detailed and interesting. Although written by more than 100 contributors, the style of the book is generally clear and fluent.
