The main goal of the Conference is to present and discuss recent developments and applications of laser and optical technologies in medicine and biology. The main attention will be paid to discussion of basic research and applications of coherent, low-coherent, polarized, spatially and temporally modulated light interaction with inhomogeneous absorbing media, tissue phantoms, and various types of tissues in vitro and in vivo.
Such phenomena, as elastic, inelastic and dynamic light scattering, Doppler effect, nonlinear effects, photoacoustic and photothermal interactions, mechanical stresses, photobiological effects, 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.
