Paper Abstract

Preliminary studies of various laboratories indicate that the scattering coefficient and scattering anisotropy of tissues can change with the temperature, especially in the temperature range where coagulation processes take place. The objective of this work was to correlate light scattering changes with ultrastructural alterations in tissue as a function of temperature. Initial results for the dependence of tissue optical properties on the thermal heating of a variety of different tissues and corresponding ultrastructural changes are presented.
