Summary

The laser has become an indispensible medical tool and new techniques and treatments are being pioneered all the time. This book begins by looking at the response of tissue to laser light. It then outlines the types of laser used in medicine, including solid-state, gas, dye and semiconductor lasers. Next the use of lasers for diagnostics is considered, including optical coherence tomography, laser spectroscopy in biomedicine and optical biopsy. A large number of chapters are dedicated to applications of lasers in therapy and surgery. Medical fields such as dermatology, urology, gynaecology, ophthalmology, dentistry and neurology are covered. The book ends with a look at medical laser safety.
