Paper Abstract

The first fully automated mobile copper and gold vapour lasers for medical applications were developed in Australia. The history of this development program is presented in this paper. These lasers have been tested in several clinical programs and success with the gold vapour laser in cancer phototherapy using HpD has been achieved in various types of tumours. Trials have commenced on the use of the 578 nm yellow line of the copper vapour laser for dermatology and plastic surgery.
