Modulight Spotlights: LASER-SHARP RESEARCH – June 2021

Modulight Spotlights: LASER-SHARP RESEARCH – June 2021 The findings by Prof. Lothar Lilge and his team might enable improved treatment of diffuse lung metastasis which are difficult to treat with standard therapies. A novel lung perfusion platform significantly reduced tissue absorption and allowed better light penetration, resulting in up to 3-fold increased treatment volumes. Congrats!   Read original publication   Modulight is very happy to be supporting this research. We would like to deliver our warmest congratulations to the research team!   #LaserSharpResearch  #ModulightInScience   Continue reading →
