Paper Abstract

With the increasing market in laser medicine and surgery it is well to plan ahead so that there will be increasing production. For the concept of so-called laser biostimulation with various low output laser systems there is much need for well controlled studies to avoid discrediting all of laser medicine. There is great potential for the future in laser instrumentation for heart disease, cancer research, diagnoses and treatment, all fields of surgery, and in perinatology. Also, laser communications and information handling can make for deliverance of better health care. It is well to open up better lines of communication between laser industry and modern medicine.
