Abstract

See full text

A system and method for performing Laser Induced Optical Breakdown (LIOB) on a target tissue includes a detector for imaging the interface surface between the target tissue and a base tissue. Also included is a laser unit for generating a laser beam, and for focusing the laser beam to a focal point. A computer is provided for controlling movement of the focal point. Specifically, this control is accomplished to maintain the focal point in the target tissue, but beyond a predetermined distance from the interface surface. For the present invention, the predetermined distance is established by considerations of laser beam geometry, which are applied in the context of images that are created of the interface surface.
