Paper Abstract

The aim of our experimental and clinical studies was to investigate the suitability of Color- Coded Duplex Sonography (CCDS) for on-line monitoring of the Laser-Induced Thermotherapy procedures. Both the changes in the CCDS imaging during irradiation as well as the thresholds at which a `color bruit' occurs were investigated. Furthermore we have evaluated the correlation between the B-scan imaging of the damaged area and the size of coagulation in pathology measurements.
