Paper Abstract

Light-emitting diode (LED) technology has provided medicine with a new tool capable of delivering light deep into tissues of the body, at wavelengths which are biologically optimal for cancer treatment, wound healing and other clinical applications. In this paper, a simple review on the clinical use in therapeutic applications as well as in laboratory work of LEDs is given in view of low intensity laser irradiation effects in biomedicine.
