Nd: YAG interstitial laser phototherapy guided by magnetic resonance imaging in an ex vivo model: dosimetry of laser-MR-tissue interaction.

Abstract

Interstitial laser phototherapy (ILP) is a promising technique in which laser energy is delivered percutaneously to various depths of tumors. This technique will become clinically useful only when efficient, sensitive, and noninvasive monitoring systems are developed. In this study, the spatial distribution of ILP in bovine liver tissue, induced by a Nd… (More)
