Paper Abstract

The very heart of applications of optical fibre technology in medicine and biology stems primarily from extraordinary reach rea ctions between an optical wave and alive matter. On the other hand, the well known facilities offered by optical fibers working as reliable transmission channels, optical buses, image and optical power channels and sensors,are being still more and more widely recognized for all kinds of medical and biological uses. In the paper we will confine ourselves mainly to the works on applications of the lightguide technology in health service, medicine and biology in this country. We will review some of the recent developments in this domain. The presentation contains the following parts: lightguide communication systems for big hospitals, safety factors of fibre optics in view of internal regulations, fibre optic safety protections in medical and industrial applications, works on optical fibre sensors for medical applications, construction of a multi-task fibre optic micro-probe, optical fibre devices for ophthalmology.
