Paper Abstract

Thermal coagulation of biological tissue leads to a significant change of the scattering coefficient. We use continuous wave transillumination techniques to monitor this change process of rat liver in different constant temperature (55 approximately 95 degree(s)C). To our knowledge, this is the first experiment about dynamic investigation. Based on light intensity measured, the change of scattering coefficient as a function of time is deduced, which show that this method is valid to monitor thermotherapy.
