Combining both optical spectroscopy and digital imaging, spectral imaging holds great promise for forensic medicine and other medical applications. The main drawbacks of the current technology include the high price of commercially available systems, the size and weight of the camera, the long data-acquisition times and the complex data-processing software. All these drawbacks will be solved in the Spectr@phone, a handheld, multispectral imaging device that will soon be tested in the Academic Medical Centre (AMC) in Amsterdam.
