Paper Abstract

The interest to the flexible radiation delivery systems for medical applications is a well known and quite clear fact. Silver halide fibers are the most convenient candidates for such use. This convenience is provided by sufficiently low attenuation of these fibers (< 1 dB/m) in a rather wide spectral range (4-16 micrometers ). In this paper we discuss the design of a delivery system coupled with commercially available CO and CO2 lasers and the recent results obtained. The application of AgHal fibers as radiation delivery tool in a medical spectroscopy diagnostics are also discussed. These fibers posses the minimum losses at the wavelength of about 10 micrometers . It is a happy accident that the spectral maximum of the human body emission falls on the same wavelength region. So, delivering emission to radiometer by the fibers the temperature can be determined.
