The optical fiber opens up a wide scope for the Medical fields. SEDI-ATI capitalizes on its experience with extreme environments to address very demanding and highly prescriptive medical applications. We talk to doctors, surgeons, researchers, and medical device manufacturers who lead the path to innovative and promising medical applications using optical fibers. We manufacture CE marked biocompatible fiber-based medical devices. They are widely used for medical diagnosis, laser therapies and laser surgeries.
Fiber optics are ideal to perform fluorescence spectroscopy analysis for diagnostic applications. They allow to illuminate a target at a defined wavelength, and to collect the fluorescence emitted by the target as a reaction to the excitation caused by the incoming light. The emitted fluorescence is relevant of the composition of the target, which allows to identify the nature of the target. These properties are for instance used to practice in-vivo diagnosis of cancers using special fiber needles, and to do blood analysis in laboratory to detect diseases.
The spatial and spectral properties of light are used in many therapeutic applications, particularly in phlebology, dermatology, urology and gynecology. Fiber optics is a technology of choice for deporting the laser light and energy in the procedures that are performed.
