Abstract


In this study, temperature effects of a low-level laser source were investigated in a muscle phantom within 20-, 40-, 60- and 80-seconds time intervals. A temperature meter device having a 5-channel and 10 kΩ NTC type thermistor sensors were developed in TÜBİTAK UME Medical Metrology Laboratory for these special temperature measurements. The muscle phantom poured into a phantom container that was specially designed for 5-channel sensor placement and printed in a 3D printer. It has also been acoustically confirmed that the phantom has muscle phantom characteristics. As a result of this study, it is concluded that the laser source used is safe and suitable at therapy usage within the specified times in terms of the detected temperaturesa
