Recent advances in lasers, multichannel detectors and PC-based spectroscopic instrumentation have made Raman spectroscopy an invaluable tool for characterization of clinical samples like tissue, body fluids and cytological smears. Efforts are being made at present to develop Raman spectroscopy techniques for optical pathology, early detection of neoplasia, analysis of body fluids, optical imaging, spectral markers for identifying clinical conditions, etc. Some of the results which will lead to such applications are presented in this paper.
