Abstract

A new approach to non-invasive image-guided laser micro-treatment is demonstrated by a dual-wavelength fiber laser source and an integrated fiber-based multi-modal system. The fiber-based source, operated in 1.55 and 1.2 μm simultaneously, was directly connected to an integrated fiber-based multi-modal system for imaging and laser micro-treatment at the same time. The 1.2 μm radiations, within the 1.2–1.35 μm bio-penetration window of skin, were utilized for spectral domain optical coherence tomography imaging. The 1.55 μm radiations, highly absorptive to waters, were utilized for laser microsurgery. The new approach, which is simple in configuration and accurately controls the positions and exposure time of the laser microsurgery, shows great promises for future clinical applications.
