Within the last years it has been shown that chemical sensitive linear and non-linear spectroscopy approaches for multi-contrast and multi-parameter imaging of biological and biomedical target structures (e.g. viruses, pathogens, tumor cells, tissue sections, organs etc.) offers great potential for clinical diagnostics and therapy. Here, we review our recent work on transferring spectroscopic approaches particularly innovative Raman methods towards clinical applications with focus on infectious diseases and cancer, since these types of diseases represent unmet medical needs with respect to diagnosis and therapy.
