|Hamamatsu believes that photonics technology can help create a future world free of cancer and dementia, in which we enjoy long lives in good health.
Optical methods for diagnosis and treatment offer a great path to such a future because in general they are gentler to the body than conventional medicine. In this section, we introduce some of our research into the application of photonics in medicine, such as the use of PET (positron emission tomography) and other tools to obtain data on biological function from cells, animals and humans. These are parts of a broader initiative in translational medicine, done in collaboration with the Hamamatsu Medical Photonics Foundation, to improve tools and methods for research, diagnosis, and treatment.
