Laser Diodes For Medical Applications
Intense manufactures a highly competitive range of laser diodes, ideal for use in a variety of medical applications.
Laser diodes are used in many significant therapeutic applications. Among the most important are the treatment of cancer by Photo Dynamic Therapy, the treatment of macular degeneration (AMD) and diabetic retinopathy by Photocoagulation and the prevention of secondary dental infection by Photodynamic Disinfection. Other medical applications for laser diodes include early cancer detection by Computed Tomography Laser Mammography and the treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and musculature strain with the use of Low Level Laser Therapy. Lasers also find cosmetic applications in hair removal.
Across all application areas, increased power, brightness, and reliability are critical to improving performance. Greater power and brightness per unit price enable the development of more cost-effective solutions and solve a more diverse range of application challenges.
