The LED source does not get heated up and would require less power to illuminate due to the absence of any filaments. Therefore, they form the effective source of light and highly used for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.
“The LED comes in a variety of colors such as red, yellow, and green, and most commonly generates bright whitish-blue light. The changes in color are highly used in otoscopy procedure, as the change in illumination improves different ear canal and tympanic membrane structures more clearly,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on .
