Raman spectroscopy, which has been employed extensively to study the structure and function of biological materials for the last two decades, also has considerable potential as a diagnostic and analytical tool in medicine. However, the medical application of Raman spectroscopy has been limited to some special topics such as lens research because most morbid materials emit strong fluorescence and are weak with respect to laser illumination. Fluorescence and decomposition, two major drawbacks of Raman spectroscopy which must be circumvented, have made its medical applications difficult.
