Aims and Scope: Lasers in Medical Science

Lasers in Medical Science has established itself as the leading international journal publication in the rapidly expanding field of the medical applications of lasers and light. It provides a forum for the publication of papers on the technical, experimental and clinical aspects of the use of medical lasers, including the use of lasers in surgery, endoscopy, angioplasty, hyperthermia of tumours, and photodynamic therapy.

In addition, the journal publishes articles on the medical application of new lasers, light delivery systems, sensors to monitor laser effects, basic laser-tissue interactions and the modelling of laser-tissue interactions. The journal also welcomes articles relating to the use of non-laser light-tissue interactions. 

Original research, reviews, brief reports and editorials in relation to these topics will be accepted.  Letters to the editor are welcome as enhancement to discussions.  Please note, the journal does not accept case reports.
