Paper Abstract

Infrared emission images of the chick chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) microvasculature following pulsed laser irradiation were recorded using a high speed infrared focal plane array camera. A three-dimensional tomographic reconstruction algorithm was applied to compute the initial space-dependent temperature increase in discrete CAM blood vessels caused by light absorption. The proposed method may provide consistent estimates of the physical dimensions of subsurface blood vessels and may be useful in understanding a variety of biomedical engineering problems involving laser–tissue interaction.
