Dose distribution in living tissue at different wavelengths, power densities, and incident target area
In the literature, the given parameters are seldom well enough specified. Because of that, it is not possible to repeat a study - even if the intensities to repeat it, it will always be a new and different one. The dose, for instance, is usually given as a single value and this is not unambiguous. As a matter of fact, no matter how a treatment is carried out, the dose is never a single constant factor. Our intensities is to shed some light on the complexity of the dose distribution in treated tissue and to give some recommendations in the specification of the dose in future reports on laser treatment.
