Proceedings of the
4th congress of the World Association for Laser Therapy 

 Tokyo, Japan, June 27-30, 2002



Dear Colleagues and Friends,

This book of papers and abstracts represents the proceedings of lectures spoken at the World Association for Laser Therapy - Fourth World Congress, which was held in Tokyo, Japan, from June 26 through June 30, 2002. We had invited over 100 distinguished physicians from various countries and arranged a broad range of lectures in the field of medicine and extended lectures on dental, veterinary and physical therapy.

This Book intends to respect the traditional academic research but at the same time seeks to liberate from them by using state of the art technologies to achieve ahead of its time. By doing so, we are able to gain the incentive to research and develop more.

I am certain that the debating of issues and exchange of information and opinions in this book by some of the world’s leading experts in the fast expanding and exciting field of laser therapy stimulates international cooperation as well as furthering studies in this area.

This book provides an opportunity for physicians, researchers and technicians from all over the world to make new recognitions of laser therapy.

This book contributes to the interflow and progress of science technology in laser therapy, as well as papers provides wonderful place of laser therapy.

For those of you who could attend the WALT Congress, this book will provide an accurate record of what took place and advances reported in our understanding of laser therapy. For those who could not join the WALT Congress, this book will help you to stay on the cutting edge of patient care and research as presented in Tokyo in June, 2002.

I have no doubt that experimental and clinical research presented by the various authors will arouse substantial interests and serve as a stimulus to further progress of laser therapy.
