Paper Abstract

Normally, a laser prostatectomy to treat Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia is performed using a fixed dosimetry. Differences in, e.g., blood flow, optical properties and geometry, are not taken into account, although most of these differences may be distinguished when performing a cystoscopy, e.g., the color of the prostate. These characteristics show their influence in the final tissue effect. We developed a model to predict the permanent damage to the tissue.
