Biological studies have always relied on visual data and its precise interpretation. Bio-imaging is an integral part of cancer research as well as the diagnosis and treatment of various cancers. Cancer research employs the various bio-imaging techniques of fluorescence microscopy like confocal microscopy, FRET, FRAP, TPEF, SGH, etc. to study the complexity and characteristics of different cancer cells. The development of live-cell imaging has also helped in understanding the important biological processes which differentiate cancer cells from their environment. Advancement in the field of cancer diagnosis has taken place with the development of sophisticated radiology techniques like MRI, CT scans, and FDG-PET. Also, the development of novel nanotechnology-based probes has improved the quality of both cancer research and diagnosis. In this chapter, the authors summarize some of the bio-imaging techniques which are being used in the field of cancer studies.
