Abstract

This work presented a method for implementing temperature dependency of optical properties of tissue in models used for predicting thermal response of tissue. The results presented suggest that there may be a significant difference in prediction of required dosimetry for a given temperature change if temperature dependence of the properties is ignored. Furthermore this difference becomes less significant for larger depths if scattering is increased with temperature but the difference remains large for larger depths if scattering is decreased with temperature.
