Biomedical Optics in Otorhinolaryngology: Head and Neck Surgery
gives an overview of current technology in biomedical optics
relevant to the field of Otorhinolaryngology and head and neck
surgery. It provides a comprehensive source of knowledge for
researchers and active clinicians seeking information on the
principles and practical use of novel diagnostic and therapeutic
technology. While most books focus exclusively on laser surgery,
which has been largely unchanged for the past 15 years, optical
diagnostics and head and neck PDT (photodynamic therapy) are
usually entirely overlooked. This book contains a basic
introduction into the physics of light and its propagation, lasers
and low-coherent light sources, and photon-tissue interaction in
relation to therapeutic and diagnostic use. The principles of
various imaging techniques are also discussed ( i.e. optical
coherence tomography in its variations), as well as the principles
and practice of lasers for surgical use on the therapeutic side.
