Laser therapy is widely used in the management of tendon diseases and injuries, being effective in reducing pain and promoting tissue repair. However, laser transmission properties in the different biological tissues are not completely known. Our aims were: 1) define a method to model and measure the penetration depth (PD), a fundamental optical parameter describing laser transmission in tissues; 2) verify whether PD depends on the tendon type.

Abstract

Laser therapy is widely used in the management of tendon diseases and injuries, being effective in reducing pain and promoting tissue repair. However, laser transmission properties in the different biological tissues are not completely known. Our aims were: 1) define a method to model and measure the penetration depth (PD), a fundamental optical parameter describing laser transmission in tissues; 2) verify whether PD depends on the tendon type.
