The primary objective of this research is to model light intensity distribution and heat deposition rate in a biological medium irradiated by a laser. Values from a heuristic beam broadening model are compared to values computed with (1) Kubelka-Munk two flux theory (2) and a multiple scattering approximation. On the basis of this model, temperature rise and damage are predicted for the canine gastric tissue irradiated by a Nd-Yag laser. These results are compared with experimental data.
