Abstract

The ability of mathematical models to predict temperature rises in biological tissue during laser irradiation by comparing calculated values with experimental measurement was investigated in this article. Using an argon laser beam samples of normal human aorta, beef myocardium, and polyacrylamide gel were irradiated in air, while surface temperatures were monitored with an IR camera.
