Paper Abstract

The high power laser beam caused typical `V' form defects in living tissues directed at an incidence of 90 degree(s). In other cases the defects are elliptic. The authors constructed a laser endoscope with a fixed and revolving mirror. Using this device they could not only direct the laser beam to the areas of the oral cavity that are accessible with difficulty but they could also achieve a laser beam incidence always close to 90 degree(s).
