This chapter describes the application of optical imaging techniques to biological tissue, to yield both qualitative and quantitative metrics of morphological and functional information.  An in-depth narrative proffers reasoning for the diagnostic and prognostic value of such techniques via comparable descriptions of its invasive predecessors.  Optical sectioning techniques of both the scattering and absorption based variety are described.  The inherent need for non-invasive imaging modalities in modern medicine is discussed, in addition to the advantageous applications of their use and current limitations affecting performance. Keywords:          biophotonics; circulation; correlation; flow; microvasculature; optical imaging; optical sectioning
