Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the rapidly evolving landscape of medical diagnostics, the integration of photonics technology has emerged as a groundbreaking development, heralding a new era in healthcare. This Special Issue, "Innovations in Photonic-Based Diagnostics", is meant to reflect on the advances made in this field and the potential it holds for transforming patient care.

Photonics, the science of light generation, manipulation, and detection, has found its way into the heart of diagnostic technologies, offering solutions that are not only innovative but also highly effective and efficient. The papers presented in this Special Issue will underscore the versatility and impact of photonic-based diagnostics across various medical domains, from detection to management.

The convergence of technology and healthcare holds promise for personalized, precise, and accessible healthcare solutions. This Special Issue will not only highlight the current achievements in this field but also set the stage for future innovations that will continue to revolutionize patient care and medical research.

Dr. Nikolaos Kourkoumelis
