HAROLD HOPKINS SYMPOSIUM
Chandos HouseLondon, UK Visit the Venue to read more
Professor Harold Hopkins FRS was a remarkable optical physicist whose work changed the world wide practice of surgery and medicine.
Although the transmission of light through curved glass fibres had been patented many years before by James Logie Baird, Harold Hopkins published the first coherent image transmitted through a fibreoptic bundle, paving the way for the development of diagnostic and therapeutic fibre optic endoscopy.
Prior to 1959, the optics of the traditional cystoscope were dreadful and after being approached by a Urologist wanting better illumination, he improved the light transmission 80 fold by developing the Rod Lens, transforming the image quality and opening the door to all minimally invasive short stay surgery.
Although lauded by his scientific peers, we believe his contribution to the practice of medicine is undervalued and he deserves higher recognition for his achievements.
The meeting will provide an opportunity to appreciate his extraordinary contribution to medicine and modern life.
