Brain Photobiomodulation-Preliminary Results from Regional Cerebral Oximetry and Thermal Imaging

Medicines (Basel). 2019 Jan 16;6(1):11. doi: 10.3390/medicines6010011.


A new piece of equipment for LED (light emitting diode) brain photobiomodulation is introduced. Preliminary results from regional cerebral oxygen saturation and from thermography are shown before, during and after stimulation. The procedure offers a new way to quantify the biological effects of a possible innovative therapeutic method. However further measurements are absolutely necessary.
