In this paper, we propose a computational framework to estimate the physical properties that govern the thermal response of laser-irradiated tissue. We focus in particular on two quantities, the absorption and scattering coefficients, which describe the optical absorption of light in the tissue and whose knowledge is vital to correctly plan medical laser treatments. To perform the estimation, we utilize an implementation of the Ensemble Kalman Filter (EnKF), a type of Bayesian filtering… Expand

Association of Liver Tissue Optical Properties and Thermal Damage
TLDR
This study found that continuous monitoring of the wavelength‐averaged tissue absorption coefficient and the reduced scattering coefficient during heating of a porcine liver at 100°C follows a sigmoidal growth curve, and concluded that increases in the tissue µa and μ s during thermocoagulation were correlated with true thermal damage.
