1. A method for non-invasive detection of the concentration of a constituent of blood of a living animal, comprising the steps of:

  • (a) irradiating a body part of the animal with intensity-modulated radiation over a continuous spectrum;

    (b) detecting the intensity of radiation emitted from the body part at a plurality of wavelength ranges within said continuous spectrum; and

    (c) using said detected intensity to calculate the concentration of the constituent.
