Software, Laser Scanning
Definition : Software designed to operate laser scanning systems and control/monitor a limited number of their functions. This software is usually intended to work only with one or a few models of laser scanning systems, usually supplied by the same manufacturer. The software performs a variety of algorithms to facilitate the analysis of measurements and images obtained during the scanning procedure and the sending/receiving of patient data from and to information systems. Laser scanning system software is usually not available separate from the laser scanning system but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the system. Dedicated laser scanning system software is available for a variety of different applications, such as mammography and optical tomography, including the characteristics of the eye structure (i.e., optical biometry).
