BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine whether the application of an infrared pulsed laser device (IPLD) on the burned skin of rats induced significant changes in the water dynamics of the burned tissues as measured by nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) at a proton frequency of 90 MHz by using transverse relaxation times (T2, I/T2). STUDY DESIGN/MATERIALS AND METHODS Seven groups (GI-GVII), each consisting of four albino rats (Sprague-Dawley), of 12-14 weeks of age were… CONTINUE READING
