Paper Abstract

We studied an optical interaction on an optical window and blood boundary during the CW laser irradiation in 660 nm band until blood charring occurrence. We previously reported that a pre-charring optical behavior may be detected by diffuse-reflected-light power time-history. The aim of this study is to measure absorption coefficient (μa) and reduced scattering coefficient (μ's) of a blood model to explain this pre-charring optical behavior. The blood model sandwiched between 2 glass slides to simulate the interface between blood and the optical window was used. A double integrating sphere system was constructed. The red laser in 660 nm band was irradiated to the sandwiched blood model. Fourty W/cm2 in irradiance was used as the maximum irradiance during irradiation via the laser catheter in vivo. μa and μ's in the irradiated laser wavelength were measured continuously until blood charring occurrence using inverse adding doubling analysis. Continuous μa increase of 5-10% from the initial value until charring was observed. Decrease of μ's with 8-10% during 15-30 s before charring following broad peak was obtained. We think these μa and μ's changes may explain the pre-charring optical behavior detected by the diffuse-reflected-light power time-history in our reported study.
