This article reviews emerging Raman techniques for deep, non-invasive characterisation of biological tissues. As generic analytical tools, the new methods pave the way for a host of new applications including non-invasive bone disease diagnosis, chemical characterisation of 'stone-like' materials in urology and cancer detection in a number of organs.
