Paper Abstract

Absence of satisfactory criteria for discrete model parameters choice during computer modeling of thermal processes of laser-biotissue interaction may be the premier sign for accuracy of numerical results obtained. The approach realizing the new concept of direct automatical adaptive grid construction is suggested. The intellectual program provides high calculation accuracy and is simple in practical usage so that a physician receives the ability to prescribe treatment without any assistance of a specialist in mathematical modeling. The real possibility of controlling of the hyperthermia processes exists: the changes of hyperthermia region volume, of its depth and of the temperature levels are possible by means of changing of free convection boundary conditions on the tissue outer surface, of the power, the radius and the shape of laser beam.
