Abstract: Near infrared imaging (NIR), using dyes that emit between 700 and 900 nm, overcome many of the absorption and light scatter problems that have been associated with whole body and tissue imaging. This review summarises current areas in which NIR provides an excellent non-invasive technology for tracking and investigating molecular movement in vivo.
