The integration of Fourier transform-infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy with microscopy facilitates analysis of spatially resolved spectral information, allowing the examination of the structure, chemical composition and building of two-dimensional maps of a heterogeneous materials. Time-resolved FT-IR imaging provide spatially resolved, millisecond-level dynamics over large sample areas, evaluating various functional groups at different pixels. FT-IR spectrometric imaging instrumentation include detectors and various modes of data collection (time-resolved imaging), for sampling. High-quality FT-IR spectrometric imaging is used for analyzing cervical cancer such as squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma using computer analysis of spectra.
