The desire to have more technology on our person, to have more advanced surgical tools and to have diagnostic tools that do more continues to grow and really plays into the ever-increasing growth of photonics. As more knowledge about the light properties and how to manipulate it is acquired, new solutions revolutionizing healthcare are developed. Today, photonics is yet again the key enabling technology for more precise and less invasive diagnostics and clinical procedures. However, the diversity of the technologies and ecosystem still retain the challenge for the development of medical devices and their integration in the clinical practice. This meeting will bring together clinical professionals, medical device manufacturers, system integrators and whole supply chain of photonics companies to discuss what application areas could benefit from photonics-based medical devices; what are the emerging solutions and new potentialities; and how to support their development and commercialization.
