Transient bioheat simulation of the laser-tissue interaction in human skin using hybrid finite element formulation

Zhang, Zewei; Wang, Hui; Qin, Qing Hua


This paper presents a hybrid finite element model for describing quantitatively the thermal responses of skin tissue under laser irradiation. The model is based on the boundary integral-based finite element method and the Pennes bioheat transfer equation. In this study, temporal discretization of the bioheat system is first performed and leads to the well-known modified Helmholtz equation. A radial basis function approach and the boundary integral based finite element method are employed to...[Show more]
