LASERS in medicine is the latest in IPEM’s ‘The Science & The Scientists’ series of leaflets and posters.

The series aim to explain the science  behind some commonly used medical treatments and introduce the scientists, engineers and technicians responsible for developing and delivering them.

They are aimed at the interested public and are also used by IPEM members in a variety of outreach activities and in their departments.

Lasers in medicine is the ninth leaflet in the series and it explains how lasers are used in medicine in a wide variety of applications, such as ophthalmology, urology and surgical procedures.
