Paper Abstract

Infrared tomography is a non contact method to determine the size and position of port wine stain blood vessels from analysis of recorded infrared emission images immediately following pulsed laser irradiation. To develop a diagnostic tool for clinical use, infrared emission images from laser irradiated tissue have been simulated on a computer. Analysis of the simulated infrared emission images shows that size and position of the laser heated vessels can be predicted.
