Paper Abstract

Much more precise laser treatments are possible with application of new methods for measurements of selected parameters of tissues during a laser treatment. It enables us to eliminate large necrosis areas occurring near the regions exposed to laser radiation. An analysis of the chosen metrological problems arising during the trials of minimization of side effects of laser surgery was performed on the basis of phenomena of pulsed interactions of laser beam with biological tissues. The main problems dealt with determination of parameters of biological tissues being within the region of laser beam interaction, significant for a course of laser treatment and its duration, have been pointed out.
