Paper Abstract

Precise coordination of image acquisition relative to lesion creation is a crucial consideration for real-time MRI-monitoring of laser-tissue interaction. A hybrid laser and MRI system is described which provides an integrated environment for coordinated operation of laser and various in-vivo monitoring devices, such as MRI, and thermometry. Furthermore, the hybrid system allows programmable analysis of image data in coordination with temperature measurements.
