Laser medicine

  (Redirected from Laser therapy)

Laser medicine consists in the use of lasers in medical diagnosis, treatments, or therapies, such as laser photodynamic therapy,[1] photorejuvenation, and laser surgery.

CW rhodamine dye laser emitting near 590 nm, one typically used in early medical laser systems.
Laser radiation being delivered, via a fiber, for photodynamic therapy to treat cancer.
A 40 watt CO2 laser with applications in ENT, gynecology, dermatology, oral surgery, and podiatry
