Optoelectronics and its Scope in Healthcare.
fiber-optic communications to wireless networks, to optical storage devices and advanced medical equipment, optoelectronics is becoming a progressively essential part of today's technology. Optoelectronic components are the hidden backbone for a large number of products. In addition to its main functions of transmitting, gathering and displaying information optoelectronics is also a vital component for storing and processing information. Optoelectronic devices enables the inter-conversion of optical and electronic information and are used in products as diverse as semiconductor lasers, light emitting diodes (LEDs), photo detectors and optical-electrical transducers.
Healthcare industry is one of the prominent sectors that have adopted optoelectronics in the recent year. Optoelectronics in medical devices are used source, detect and control light; they are used in all applications where there is a need of illumination. The adaption of optoelectronics in healthcare has reduced the chances for human errors and at the same time it provides accurate readings and faster results. It has also reduces the need to open up the human body for examination. The main areas of application of optoelectronics in healthcare include endoscopic medicine, non-invasive surgery, ophthalmology and capturing illuminated images among others.
The scope of optoelectronics in healthcare segment is driven by some major factors that include an aging and expanding population; this is accelerating the development of new and different medical equipment. Secondly, the need for rapid diagnostic at all levels; this is creating demand for smaller and more precise systems. Thirdly, the growing importance of areas like endomedicines and endoscopies is pushing forward the research work. The advancements in optoelectronics have led to development of much smaller and even disposable endoscopy probes.
But the scope of efficiency of these devices is restricted to the efficiency of the operator; the conclusions are based on how good the operator interprets the captured images. Despite all this the opportunity for optoelectronics ranks high in the healthcare segment.
