We present a fast and flexible fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy which uses a two-dimensional acousto-optic deflector to achieve fast beam scanning across the sample and provides random access to the regions of interests (ROI). Experimental results using standard fluorescent dye and biological samples show that this system can make addressable fluorescence lifetime measurements and perform fast and flexible fluorescence lifetime imaging particularly to the discontinuous ROI in the sample.
