Hyperspectral Imaging (HSI) is a pertinent technique to provide meaningful information about unique objects in the medical field. This paper discusses the basic principles, imaging methods, comparisons, and advances in the medical applications of HSI to accentuate the importance of HSI in the medical field. To date, there are numerous tools and methods to fix the problems, but reliable medical HSI tools and methods need to be studied. The enactment and analytical competencies of HSI for medical imaging are discussed. Specifically, the recent successes and limitations of HSI in biomedical are presented to offer the readers an insight into its current potential for medical research. Lastly, we have discussed the future challenges concerning medical applications and possible ways to overcome these limitations.

Keywords: Hyperspectral imaging, spectral imaging, biomedical, deep learning, optical imaging, infrared.
