    Abstract

    Inflammatory processes as they occur during rheumatoid arthritis (RA) lead already in early stages of the disease to changes in the optical properties of joint tissues and fluids. In this work we report on in vivo studies involving human subjects, which show the potential of optical tomographic techniques for the early diagnosis of RA.
