Paper Abstract

Several quantitative histopathologic markers of thermal damage that relate to tissue temperature and heating duration have been described. When a point source of heat is used the histopathologic changes radiate from the heating site to form concentric zones of tissue injury that are separated by distinct boundaries. To be detected and measured some of these markers require survival after the heating event (in vivo heating) and an intact blood flow within the targeted organ. Other markers can be found in tissues heated in vitro as well as in vivo.
