1. A surgical laser system, comprising
a surgical laser assembly, wherein the surgical laser assembly comprises a first laser;
an optical assembly, wherein the optical assembly is configured to deliver an output of the first laser to a tissue;
an aiming laser assembly, wherein the aiming laser assembly comprises one or more second lasers configured to mark the tissue, wherein the aiming laser assembly is also configured to provide an excitation energy for a fluorescent process from the tissue or from a marker at the tissue location; wherein the aiming laser assembly comprises an aiming laser controller, wherein the aiming laser controller is configured to control the excitation energy provided by at least a laser of the one or more second lasers for the fluorescent process,
a fluorescent sensing assembly, wherein the fluorescent sensing assembly is configured to detect a fluorescent signal emitted from the tissue or from the marker;
a controller, wherein the controller is configured to process the fluorescent signal for assistance in controlling the surgical laser assembly.
