Patient Comfort and Safety

Diagnostics and Medical Treatments

Precisely-dosed and targeted application of lasers enable today's health sector with highly effective treatment methods. Possible applications range from surgery and cosmetic treatment to fabrication of patient-specific artificial joints and dental prostheses.

Typical Biomedical Applications of Scanners

  • Surgery in ophthalmology Laser vision correction methods (microkeratome lasik, femto lasik, minimal invasive lenticule extraction) or laser cataract surgery
    Retinal photocoagulation to treat conditions including diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration
  • Biomedical and ophthalmic imaging High-resolution, non-invasive diagnostic imaging via OCT (optical coherence tomography) and SLO (scanning laser ophthalmoscopy) e.g. for measuring retinal thickness or detecting glaucoma and macular degeneration
  • Confocal or multiphoton microscopy High resolution imaging for use in research and biomedical applications
  • Laser 3D printing / additive manufacturing Fabrication of individualized implants or joint and dental prostheses, as well as customized surgical tools
  • Long-lasting and high-resolution labeling (laser marking) of artificial joints and treatment tools
  • Laser treatments in dermatology Laser skin resurfacing, a gentle approach for reduction of scars and wrinkles, long-lasting hair removal and treatment of skin and blood vessel changes (spider veins, red veins, port-wine stains)
  • DNA sequencing for personalized medical approaches and biomedical research
