Paper Abstract

The physical processes of the skin hyperthermia accompanying the tissue irradiation by visible laser light is discussed. The numerical model based on the program complex SFEMA takes into account the physical heterogeneity and the absorption power density distribution, which was obtained by the Monte Carlo method. The temperature distribution to boundary condition and laser beam radius was researched. The possibility to obtain the needed temperature distribution was shown.
