Guest Editorial Medical Applications of Optics

William R. Hendee
1976 Optical Engineering: The Journal of SPIE  
The five papers included in this special issue entitled Medical Applications of Optics were selected as representative of the many excellent presentations at the topical symposium on "Application of Optical Instrumentation in Medicine IV" in September 1975 in Atlanta. The quality of the papers and the spirited discussions at the sessions reflect a growing interest in the applications of optical instrumentation to medicine, as well as an increasing level of communication among physicists, engineers, and physicians concerning these applications.
