About this book

Laser--Tissue Interactions provides a thorough description of the fundamentals and applications in this field. Basic conceptions such as optical and thermal properties of tissue, various types of tissue ablation, and optical breakdown with related effects are treated in detail. Special attention is given to mathematical tools (Monte Carlo simulations, Kubelka--Munk theory) and approved techniques (photodynamic therapy, laser-induced interstitial thermotherapy). The part on applications reviews clinically relevant methods in modern medicine according to the latest references. The last chapter includes today's standards of laser safety, with a careful selection of essential guidelines published by the Laser Institute of America. Numerous research photographs, illustrations, tables, and comprehensive explanations turn this book into a useful guide for graduate students and scientists.
