Lung diseases, such as asthma, acute respiratory infections, tuberculosis, lung cancer, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), are a global concern. More than one billion people suffer from either acute or chronic respiratory conditions worldwide. Better understanding of lung disease is crucial to reducing morbidity and mortality. Fluorescence-based optical endomicroscopy (OEM) systems, enabled with fibre bundles, have stimulated interest within this area because they provide a low cost and minimally invasive solution for high resolution imaging and measurements in vivo, in situ.
