Proceedings of the Light-Activated Tissue Regeneration and Therapy Conference covers issues such as the latest advances in the field and measurements including the determination of the mechanisms of light-activated tissue regeneration and therapy. Light sources, narrow and broadband, as well as the metrology and medical outcomes they produce, are discussed.

This book discusses the following topics: Laser therapy; Mechanism; Photodynamic therapy; Cardiovascular; Pain; Neuroscience/Progenitor and Stem cells; Wound healing; Unusual Sources; Electrical Fields, Optical Fields and Other fields; Dentistry; Diabetes.

The book is the first to present the mechanism which explains why light is an effective treatment for so many illnesses and diseases. It not only explains this mechanism, but also describes uses for the mechanism, as well as what new work is planned and advice on how to bring devices to FDA for clearance.
