Optical technologies and photonics are increasingly used for treatment and early diagnosis as they are minimally invasive, reduce the length of hospital stay and reduce recovery times.
Main segments are:
- Photonic-based devices and procedures in microscopy, tomography, and endoscopy to provide diagnosis, therapy, and monitoring for a wide range of diseases.
- Endoscopy, Optical coherence tomography (OCT), and photonics-based biomarkers for medical imaging for diagnosis and early prevention of cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer, etc.
- Laser surgeries and phototherapies for skin diseases, ophthalmology, and dentistry.
- 3D laser-based printing for the manufacture of a wide range of medical implants.
