Fluorescence offers a non-invasive means to assess the structure and status of a tissue. In the clinic, two basic tasks are required: (1) surveillance of large tracts of tissue, best done with video endoscopy in order to efficiently find sites of abnormality; and (2) spectroscopy of local sites, best done with an optical fiber fluorescence spectrometer in order to specifically characterize a tissue site and eliminate false positives. The role of tissue optics in distorting fluorescence measurements is presented.
