Presentation Summary

Personalized healthcare is a mega trend which will shape the next decade of medical technologies. To make it possible, a faster and better early diagnosis is required. Innovative diagnosis systems focus on point-of-care testing instead of long visits at the hospital or expensive analysis in a laboratory. The lecture puts emphasis on new photonic sensor systems in this field. Possible medical applications are orthosis systems for preventive measures or the mobile testing of smallest blood sample quantities within seconds.
