An iconic moment in the history of infrared imaging may have been born in 2013 with the announcement of the first technique to offer full color IR tomography. The technique has combined Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy with computed tomography (CT-scans) to create a non-destructive 3D imaging technique that provides molecular-level chemical information of unprecedented detail on biological and other specimens with no need to stain or alter the specimen.
