Lasers in modern clinical practice

  • I. A. Shcherbakov
On the Rostrum of the RAS Presidium


Many new developments in laser medical equipment, as well as laser diagnostic technologies and treatment, are based on the results of basic research conducted at the Prokhorov Institute of General Physics, RAS. The introduction of these results into the clinical practice of Russian health care and their use in ophthalmology, neurosurgery, urology, cosmetology, dermatology, photodynamic therapy, autofluorescence and photodynamic diagnostics, and minimally invasive diagnostics of exhaled air are considered.
