Fiber solutions from 355nm to 16µm in advanced diagnostics and laser surgery (Conference Presentation)

Paper Abstract

Review of the latest progress in specialty fiber optics of broad 0.4-16µm range. The advanced fiber solutions for minimal invasive laser medicine and biomedical diagnostics will be presented: minimal invasive laser angioplasty at 355nm, inter-corporal InfraRed-imaging of esophagus during RF-ablation, multi-spectral tissue diagnostics to detect tumor margins ex-vivo, etc. Fiber optics enables more effective and less invasive medical operations when used for operation monitoring in so called "theranostics" – the synergy fusion of diagnostics with therapy. Mid IR-fiber endoscopy, for example, helps to eliminate risk of RF-Ablation in the common treatment used against atrial fibrillation – by providing the IR-imaging inside esophagus.
