Abstract
The combination of rapid temperature decay along radial distance and rapid temperature decay with time suggests that effective laser-tissue interaction with limited thermal damage can be achieved using pulsed Ho:YAG laser. Our study confirms the physical hypothesis that short irradiation time with high pulse energy produces a rapid temperature rise.
