This joint NEI/NIBIB symposium will focus on high resolution imaging of complex biological systems and describe advances at the theoretical, technical, and clinical levels that bridge technology and clinical diagnosis critical for ophthalmology and a growing number of medical fields. High resolution non-invasive functional imaging technology of significant diagnostic value includes laser scanning confocal/ magnetic resonance/2-photon microscopy, optical coherence tomography, speckle microscopy, and adaptive optics. These techniques and others have proven valuable in the diagnosis and treatment of diverse disease states. Symposium presentations will describe recent novel approaches to create high resolution temporal and spatial images to study a range of cells, organs, and tissues throughout the body.
