The thermal pulse-decay method, as developed and analyzed by Chen et al. [1-6], is a thermal clearance technique that uses a small thermistor probe for determining the blood perfusion and thermal conductivity of the tissue immediately surrounding the probe. They described the energy transfer of the probe/tissue system mathematically with a simple analytical model, the point source model, which assumes that the heating source is infinitely small. This paper introduces a new, more accurate… CONTINUE READING
