Optical and photonic technologies are used for many applications in the medical field, as well as for body care. With their ability to understand application needs and their in-depth knowledge of optical and photonic technologies, PISÉO experts contribute to the health and well-being of patients by developing and characterizing systems for several applications.
– Medical endoscopes : Thanks to micro-cameras and suitable lighting systems, medical endoscopes make it possible to produce high-resolution images in real-time for diagnostic purposes.
– Dental cameras : Dental cameras, also known as intraoral cameras, provide high-quality images for diagnostic purposes and 3D reconstruction of the dentition. Integrating very small cameras and adapted lighting systems, they are increasingly used by dentists.
– Phototherapy : Phototherapy makes it possible to carry out medical treatments using light. Examples of phototherapy include the treatment of jaundice in newborns, skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema, wound healing, acne, skin rejuvenation, and skin and muscle and joint pain relief. To develop efficient and safe systems, it is essential to control the wavelengths and the power of the radiation produced by LEDs or LASERs, and to comply with the regulations on the associated optical risks.
