Abstract
Based on the theory of the thermotherapy and recent development, the optical methods are introduced to investigate thermally induced changes in tissue. The typical results show that the scattering coefficient changes with damage integral of tissue, which provides a new method for measurement of damage parameters. By establishing the relationship between the absorption coefficient and dehydration of tissue, it is possible to deduce the dynamics of thermal properties. Optical imaging on thermally induced blood perfusion will help to know the dependence relation of blood and damage integral. It is very important for study dosimetry of thermotherapy based on monitoring of thermotherapy with optical techniques.
