KurzbeschreibungThe lecture introduces the principles of generation, propagation and detection of light and its therapeutic and diagnostic application in medicine.
LernzielThe lecture provides knowledge about light sources and light delivery systems, optical biomedical imaging techniques, optical measurement technologies and their specific applications in medicine. Fundamental principles will be accompanied by practical and contemporary examples. Different selected optical systems used in diagnostics and therapy will be discussed.
InhaltOptics always was strongly connected to the observation and interpretation of physiological phenomenon. The basic knowledge of optics for example was initially gained by studying the function of the human eye. Nowadays, biomedical optics is an independent research field that is no longer restricted to the observation of physiological processes but studies diagnostic and therapeutic problems in medicine. A basic prerequisite for applying optical techniques in medicine is the understanding of the physical properties of light, the light propagation in and its interaction with tissue. The lecture gives inside into the generation, propagation and detection of light, its propagation in tissue and into selected optical applications in medicine. Various optical imaging techniques (optical coherence tomography or optoacoustics) as well as therapeutic laser applications (refractive surgery, photodynamic therapy or nanosurgery) will be discussed.
Skriptwill be provided via Internet (Ilias)
