    Hi Elisa,
    We don’t use this. Can you elaborate of how it works?
    Thanks
    Christina

    Hi, All-

    Our organization is looking at purchasing a photobiomodulation (light therapy) machine to use with our patients to prevent mucositis. I’m wondering if any other institutions are currently using light therapy? If so, which product are you using and have you seen a decrease in the incidence of mucositis rates?

    Thanks,
    Elissa
