14 March 2018 Usage of light for enhanced sensing and treating of inflammations and infections (Conference Presentation)
Author Affiliations +
In this presentation we demonstrate how light can be useful both for sensing as well as for treating different types of inflammations and infections. In respect to sensing we show how a laser and a camera based system can be used in order to “hear” from a distance the “sounds” of e.g. the lungs while realizing a non-contact stethoscope which can be useful for detection of inflammable lungs diseases such as asthma. In respect to treating inflammations and infections with light, we will show how special light sources can be used in order to destroy candida nail infection or how combination of laser light together with gentamicin antibiotic can significantly enhancement the susceptibility of a bacteria such as P. aeruginosa.
