Abstract
A short review about the elementary processes which characterize the laser beam interaction with the tissues, of interest in low level laser therapy is made. Author's comments about the spreading of the laser radiation within the tissue, function of the modal structure and other parameters are presented. Author's proposals about the evaluation of the low level laser therapy results are reported, based on their experience in the clinical treatment of some diseases using low energy laser beams emitted in red and near infrared. Particular comments are introduced about the use of electromyography (EMG), electroneurography (ENG) and cutaneous ultrasound (US) in connection with the objective measurement of the results obtained in the treatment with low energy/power laser beams.
