Photonics (Optoelectronics) in Medicine and Surgery for the 21st Century

  • David M. Harris


Innovations from the fields of clinical lasers, computer science, medical imaging, spectroscopy, robotics, and biochemistry are being integrated into multi-media and virtual reality medical systems. These systems are designed to aid physicians in diagnosis and minimally invasive surgery. The graphic displays of biologic processes and images of the body are ideal for remote transmission over medical teleconferencing networks.
