Course Instructor
SC1290: Medical Laser-Tissue Interactions
As an engineer, scientist or technician working with lasers in the medical field, you like to educate your medical colleagues how to use the laser safely on patients. Educating them with formulas, graphs and models turns them off. This course is a visual spectacle full of video clips, showing the effects of various medical lasers in simulations and tissues using high speed and thermal imaging techniques. Using simple deduction, the many parameters of influence can be brought back to a simple equation: the amount of energy that is deposited in a particular volume (~absorption depth x beam diameter) of tissue within a particular length of time. With this background, the dynamics of the ablation process of tissue, the characteristics of laser delivery devices, the effect of focused beams and short lasers pulses will explained. Students will be provided with a set of rules of thumb to explain physicians what tissue effects they can expect and use medical lasers safely.
