Abstract
The paper deals with the optimal formulation of the heat transfer inverse problem in biological tissues. The aim is to reconstruct the actual distribution of thermal properties within a tested object. The decision vector may be chosen depending on the knowledge about an investigated object. The number of unknown model elements may be chosen. For a low number, wide knowledge about the object is required. For a too high number of unknown elements the quality of the reconstruction algorithm may be decreased or even it may lead to non-uniqueness of the stated problem. Methods used for investigation of phantoms and for non-invasive skin burn diagnostic are presented.
