Optical technologies and photonics are playing a key role in non-invasive methods for the early detection, monitoring and improved treatment of cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer, and many other diseases.
Main segments are:
- Medical imaging based on endoscopy and optical coherence tomography (OCT) for monitoring and diagnosis.
- Fiber-optic solutions, IR imaging and spectroscopy for minimally invasive laser surgery.
- Advanced imaging using acousto-optic elements for early treatment for cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer, Parkinson, cardiovascular, etc.
- Miniaturised sensing technologies for wearables to measure range of health parameters.
