The use of CT perfusion to monitor the effect of hypocapnia during laser thermal therapy in a rabbit model.

Abstract

One of the limiting factors in the thermal therapy of tumours is the dissipation of heat by blood flow. The current study investigates the use of hyperventilation (hypocapnia) to decrease tumour blood flow during laser thermal therapy. Rabbits with implanted VX2 thigh tumours were treated using a diode laser (805 nm) as the heating source. One group of… (More)
