Paper Abstract

Thermal effects of visible and near-infrared laser pulses were modeled in order to guide future pre-clinical and clinical studies for transpupillary thermotherapy for choroidal neovascularization. A finite-difference, thermophysical model of the native fundus was developed, and contributions were added to consider the effects of incident visible and near-infrared laser irradiation, natural pigment heterogeneity, an absorptive CNV complex, as well as subretinal and sub-RPE blood. Calculations were performed with and without choroidal convective cooling.
