It's impossible to imagine today's medical technology without industrial cameras. They support doctors by
- simplifying treatments,
- enabling remote diagnosis and operations, and
- documenting before/after results.
However, stricter regulations apply to the field of medicine, since people's lives are at stake. Mistakes must be eliminated, which results in lengthy and cost-intensive approval processes. For this reason, long-term availability of the components must be guaranteed. Furthermore, a high colour fidelity is immensely important, as red isn't always the same red, for example, and nuances can make all the difference when it comes to making a diagnosis.
Example applications in medical technology
- Dental medicine: 3D scanners
- Ophthalmology: Slit lamps, eye lasers (LASIK)
- Orthopaedics: Movement and gait analysis
- Dermatology: Skin scanners
