Abstract:   (7157 Views)
In this paper, thermal effects of laser irradiance on biological tissue is investigated using computer simulations. Earlier attempts in this field made use of finite difference and finite element techniques. Here a novel approach is adopted to improve the results. The effect of our implicit approach on the convergence procedure and accuracy of results, with different timing steps, is explored. Monte Carlo method is used in combination with the finite volume algorithm in order to obtain a profile of light distribution and heat transport in tissue. It is shown that implicit finite volume technique has not only acceptable accuracy, but also high stability for different timing steps.
