Abstract
Visualization of tissue microenvironments is important to understand cellular functions within the tissue, to diagnose diseases, and to monitor therapeutic effects. We applied both two-photon microscopy (TPM) and optical coherence tomography (OCT). TPM and OCT are based on different contrast mechanism: two-photon fluorescence and light back scattering respectively, and they provides different information of tissue: molecular and cellular information, and structural and physiological information.  Various imaging systems based on TPM and OCT were developed and applied to various tissue studies. These included mouse eye infection study, skin burn and inflammation study, and colon cancer study etc.
