Therapeutic Laser Applications (BA)


Therapeutic Laser Applications

AudienceThis group focuses on the use of lasers in surgery or in other treatments of disease. This includes the use of lasers as surgical tools for tissue cutting, welding, and coagulation, as well as the use of optics to initiate cell-damaging photochemical reactions for the treatment of diseases such as cancer. In addition, optics, spectroscopy, and imaging provide unique tools that may allow real-time diagnostics of the efficacy of clinical procedures. For many of these applications, the development of optical tools for appropriate light delivery, especially for fiber-based or endoscopic delivery to tissues that are not directly accessible, is critical. In addition, this group emphasizes basic science studies of the mechanisms by which light can affect tissue in adverse or therapeutic ways.

Congratulations to David Busch, the new chair of the Therapeutic Laser Applications Technical Group! If you are a member of this group and have ideas for activities and initiatives to help engage this community, please share them with David as he begins his term as chair.

Read the blog posts from the Photobiomodulation Incubator Meeting, which focused on the discussion and dissemination of scientifically sound research in the field of photobiomodulation.
