ZEREBRALE PHOTOBIOMODULATION — VORLÄUFIGE ERGEBNISSE ZUR REGIONALEN ZEREBRALEN OXYMETRIE UND THERMISCHEN BILDGEBUNG

Cerebral Photobiomodulation — Preliminary Results Concerning Regional Cerebral Oximetry and Thermal Imaging

Zusammenfassung

Ein neues Gerät für die LED-Photobiomodulation wird vorgestellt. Vorläufige Ergebnisse der regionalen zerebralen Sauerstoffsättigung und der Thermografie werden vor, während und nach der Stimulation gezeigt. Diese Verfahren bieten neue Wege, um die biologischen Wirkungen einer möglichen innovativen therapeutischen Methode zu quantifizieren. Weitere Messungen sind jedoch unbedingt erforderlich.

Summary

A new piece of equipment for LED brain photobiomodulation is introduced. Preliminary results from regional cerebral oxygen saturation and from thermography are shown before, during and after stimulation. These procedures offer new ways to quantify the biological effects of a possible innovative therapeutic method. However further measurements are absolutely necessary.
