Wondering what’s all the fuss about joules, class 4, laser dose, and watts? Is it necessary to understand them for optimum laser applications? You aren’t alone. For instance, practitioners are sometimes encouraged to buy a high-power laser when their clinical applications may require less power with appropriate wavelengths. On the other extreme, some proponents suggest purchasing very low-powered lasers with inappropriate wavelengths for most physical medicine applications.
The webinar provides answers to typical questions such as:
• What’s the connection between laser power, spot size, treatment time, and tissue penetration?
• What are the best laser application techniques based on wavelength and power?
• What is the best wavelength within the Therapeutic Window (between 600 nm and 1100 nm)?
• When is it useful to combine different wavelengths?
