Effects of short-pulsed laser radiation on transient heating of superficial human tissues

Randrianalisoa , Jaona H; Dombrovsky , Leonid A.; Lipinski, Wojciech; Timchenko , Victoria

Description

Transient radiative transfer effects are pertinent to thermal treatment of superficial cancer via short-pulsed laser irradiation. Importance of the transient effects arise from relatively strong scattering and long attenuation path of radiation in human tissues in the therapeutic window until the complete absorption. Our analysis is based on transport approximation for scattering phase function and the Monte Carlo method for solving the three-dimensional radiative transfer problem. Monte Carlo...[Show more]
