Lasers in Medical Diagnosis and Therapy
Basics, applications and future prospects
Christoph Gerhard, Stephan Wieneke
Lasers in Medical Diagnosis and Therapy: Basics, applications and future prospects provides an overview on medical lasers and laser systems as well as laser applications in medical diagnosis and therapy. Since it was written by physicists, it focusses on the physics and underlying mechanisms of laser diagnosis and therapy, and thus initially covers the basics of laser-light generation, a selection of the most important laser types and systems commonly used in medicine, and the principles of laser-light guidance. The book should be used as a textbook for lectures, practise lessons and for the preparation of exams. It is suitable for students, lecturers and researchers in the fields of medical engineering and technology, medical physics, medicine and surgery, ophthalmology, dermatology, laser physics and development, and optical engineering.
