Long term stability of sensation thresholds from 10 millisecond pulses of 2.01 micrometer laser light
Current methods for diagnosing and evaluating efficacy for treatment of diabetic neuropathy either give only subjective data or are invasive. However, the use of laser induced sensations to evaluate threshold sensations gives precisely quantifiable and reproducible stimulus and is 100% non-invasive. In this study we evaluated whether or not laser sensation thresholds were stable in 12 human subjects over a four month period of time. Subjects' hands and feet were exposed over eight different exposure sessions to 10 ms pulses of laser light produced by a 50 W Tm: YAG laser system. Sensation ...
