Optical Technologies in Biophysics & Medicine XV

Preliminary program

The main goal of the Workshop is to involve junior researches and students in the field of recent developments and applications of laser and optical technologies in medicine and biology. The main attention will be paid to discussion of fundamentals and general approaches of description of coherent, lowcoherent, polarized, spatially and temporally modulated light interaction with inhomogeneous absorbing media, tissue phantoms, and various types of tissues in vitro and in vivo.

Such effects as static and dynamic light scattering, Doppler effect, photoacoustic and photothermal interactions, mechanical stress, photodynamic effect, etc will be considered. On this basis the variety of laser and optical technologies for medical diagnostics, therapy, surgery, and light dosimetry will be analyzed. Lasers and optical techniques for cardiology, dermatology, ophthalmology, gynecology, dentistry and other fields of medicine will be presented. Light scattering and photochemical techniques in cell biology and microbiology will be discussed.
