PET scan, CT and MRI are almost standard in today’s diagnostics – highly developed and very sophisticated. Although more capable and less cost-intensive, laser-optical diagnosis methods are, up to now, far less prevalent. FAMOS is aiming to change this.
Some diseases like cancer call for sophisticated imaging methods and also sample taking for precise diagnosis and therapy control. In the future, in case of examinations of surface tissue such as human skin, retina, and intestine, optical methods could be the technique of choice to clarify the matter – more cost-effective, non-invasive, and without requiring ionizing radiation and contrast agents. For examinations, only high-energy laser light is used.
