Paper Abstract

The present study attempts to assess the in-vivo effects of Nd:YAG laser irradiation on the brain in different gaseous environments. Such an investigation is critical for determining the extent of injury under such conditions to further improve clinical applications. The authors define the influence on laser-tissue interaction of room air, 30% oxygen, helium, and nitrogen
