This is particularly useful in medicine, where less invasive ap­ proaches to surgery and diagnosis are always helpful.

However, as Rol and his colleagues explain, the power-handling capabilities ofoptical fibers limit many applications, particularly for short-duration, high-peak-power laser pulses. For this reason, an extensive review is presented here of the entire field of Russian applications of lasers in medicine and biology.

Although the author, Dr. Gamaleya, has not worked directly with many of the applications, he has a general background in laser usage and has received much help from his colleagues in assembling the material. The Journal of Biomedical Optics (JBO) is an open access journal that publishes peer-reviewed papers on the use of novel optical systems and techniques for improved health care and biomedical research.

Overview Aims and Scope. Lasers in Surgery and Medicine publishes the highest quality research and clinical manuscripts in areas relating to the use of lasers in medicine and biology.

The journal publishes basic and clinical studies on the therapeutic and diagnostic use of lasers in all the surgical and medical. Medical applications of diode lasers cover the whole diode laser spectrum, starting from nm ultraviolet and violet DLs used for sterilization and some surgery applications, through photodynamic therapy (PDT) in the visible wavelength range at – nm, to longer wavelengths.

‘Laser Applications in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery’ by Guy A. Catone Charles C. Alling III is one such book that stores important references for use of laser in these surgeries and what are the complications, every aspiring surgeon should be familiar with such books in order to stand tall in the field of Medicine.

Surgical applications include urology, cardiovascular and veterinary surgery. Lasers offer an advantage because the high intensity can cut tissue and coagulate blood at the same time.

Researchers have demonstrated that laser surgery results in the removal of much less tissue than traditional procedures, improving patient recovery.

LASER Applications of Lasers. Laser is an optical device that generates intense beam of coherent monochromatic light by stimulated emission of radiation.

Laser light is different from an ordinary light. It has various unique properties such as coherence, monochromacity, directionality, and high intensity.The use of lasers in medical practice has dramatically increased over the years.
