Optical sensing techniques are under continuous development and can offer clinicians reliable and efficient tools for monitoring, diagnoses, prognoses and therapeutic purposes. For example, optical methods have
their place in point-of-care devices, such as traditional spectroscopic or new
evanescent wave technologies. However, the application of new
photonics technologies to medicine is at a relatively early stage and the full potential is yet to be realised.
