Application of infrared focal plane arrays for temperature monitoring in laser surgery

Published Web Location Commons 'BY' version 4.0 license

Preliminary analysis of the applicability of IR FPAs to monitor temperature changes during various laser therapies has been performed at the Beckman Laser Institute. Temperature measurements have been made implementing a high frame rate staring FPA. Extensive measurement of skin surface temperature during pulsed laser exposure of port wine stain was performed. Cursory experiments were performed on lung, teeth, and eye tissue during laser exposure.
