Image-guided laser surgery is defined, and an outline of its development is provided. Recent advances in radiologic imaging provide added visualization of laser-induced tissue effects. Current research around the world illustrates the power and potential of this technique in both laser and nonlaser applications. Future studies will reveal the actual contribution to laser surgery in otolaryngology.
