Lasers in medicine combine many aspects of science and engineering, including engineering design (ME, EE, CE, etc), laser physics, and biologic tissue interaction. ? Designing lasers to meet the needs of patients and practitioners requires an understanding of laser tissue interaction and close collaboration between engineering and clinicians. Many attributes of lasers, including wavelength pulse duration, spot size and fluence directly affect how laser light interacts with tissue. ? Understanding of each parameter along with the biology of the target structure allows laser manufacturers to develop new and innovative ways to treat patients with improved efficacy and reduced risks. ? This presentation provides an overview of laser and tissue interaction, including clinical and engineering validations to illustrate the process and science behind the development of medical lasers.
