Medical diagnostic imaging and therapeutic applications using lasers such as Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and laser hyperthermia therapy have limited success due to the lack of penetration depth of light into in vivo tissues. Light can only travel a few millimeters into tissue before the effects of scattering and absorption attenuate it to unuseful levels.
