Fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM) has previously been shown to provide contrast between normal and diseased tissue. The study presents progress towards clinical and preclinical FLIM endoscopy of tissue autofluorescence, demonstrating a flexible wide-field endoscope that utilised a low average power blue picosecond laser diode excitation source and was able to acquire ~mm-scale spatial maps of autofluorescence lifetimes from fresh ex vivo diseased human larynx biopsies in ~8 seconds using an average excitation power of ~0.5 mW at the specimen.
