Reply To: Light therapy for prevention of mucositis
No but I have been looking into it and we would like to pilot it soon. What is the device you are looking at? There are a few out there. It also has uses for pain reduction and enhanced healing of mucositis. St Jude did some research on it.

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?
