For instance, lasers can selectively remove microscopic "targets" inside living tissue without causing a scar.

Truly amazing are the new ways scientists find to use the laser. New medical imaging technology allows doctors to shine laser light on living tissues, helping detect problems like breast cancer or retinal diseases in their early stages. Clinical trials are now underway for a laser-based technique that could identify Alzheimer's disease decades before symptoms begin. Scientists have even found a way to destroy cancer cells by first inserting gold nanoparticles into tumors, then zapping them with laser light.
