medical devices using optical encoder discs

MEDICAL

Optics and photonics are crucial for precise and accurate engineering in the medical field. Photonic technology helps to provide low-cost, effective ways to diagnose, treat, and prevent disease. Optics and imaging help medical providers see what was unavailable without current technology—such as the direct imaging of bones, tissue, and organs with X-rays. These products (including optical encoder discs) are also highly sensitive and precise. Craftsmanship can often mean the difference between life and death in the medical industry.
