In December 2014, AEOI experts built 7 new state-of-the-art laser systems with medical applications.
The laser systems included holmium lasers and second harmonic laser systems with applications in prostate surgery and kidney stone crusher machine, erbium laser and bio-di laser systems for dentistry, a fractional laser system to help the treatment process of skin diseases and a laser therapy machine with applications in physiotherapy.
Also in September 2014, researchers from Iran University of Medical Sciences presented a new method in September to overcome limitations in the laser surgery of head and neck through nanotechnology.
This therapy increases the performance of cancer treatment methods if it completely succeeds and helps the society’s health significantly.
