The UCI Beckman Laser Institute & Medical Clinic’s laboratory benchtop to patient bedside approach, fosters an environment for enhanced communication and collaboration between clinicians and researchers that enables the:
- Development of improved diagnostics and treatments that are safer or more effective than those currently available.
- Investigation of innovative uses for technologies that are currently available.
- Pioneering new diagnostics and treatments when no others exist.
These studies harness the precision and power of light and have led to the world’s most advanced laser skin procedures for facial plastic surgery, vascular birthmarks and malformations and other conditions, such as acne, rosacea, psoriasis and skin cancers. These procedures include Dynamic Cooling technology, pulsed dye lasers and photodynamic therapy.
UCI Beckman Laser Institute & Medical Clinic has played a prominent role in the development of fiber-based microendoscopic technologies and translated these technologies for imaging. Although each optical probing technique provides important diagnostic parameters, integration using several methods is necessary to effectively diagnose and manage complex diseases.
