Paper Abstract

Claims of different effects of cold laser (CL) irradiation may be attributable to the competition of different reaction channels activated by CL and/or the unreproducibility of irradiation conditions. This study is concerned about reproducibility of the conditions of irradiation. We present a comparative analysis of the correlation between irradiation characteristics and biostimulation parameters, and show that the leading cause of treatment unreproducibility is the discrepancy of therapeutical and true irradiation doses. We analyze different approaches of true dose determination, influence of blood content and microcirculation on dosage and describe principles of true doses generating. It is shown that only on-line regulation of both parameters of dosage, CL power and temporal mode of irradiation, allows the determination of individual true dose. Problems of designing CL with feedback for on-line regulation of dosage parameters are also described.
