About This Webinar
This webinar, presented by OFS, will provide an overview of current in vivo medical procedures performed using lasers and optical fibers. The presentation will begin with a brief history of laser-based medical applications. Speaker Jaehan Kim will describe the types of light-tissue interactions and discuss which wavelengths have been found most useful for different medical procedures. He will also touch on the use of high-power versus low-power lasers.

The webinar will cover different types of medical laser procedures, focusing on in vivo procedures for neurology, ophthalmology, cardiology, and other applications. It will also cover the use and benefits of laser-based imaging applications such as OCT and the use of lasers for cancer detection, endoscopic imaging, and medical sensing. The benefits of the Raman fiber laser — a potentially game-changing technology for medical laser applications — will also be discussed. This webinar will be approximately one-half hour in length.
