Thermal Distribution During Photoradiation Therapy
The optical power which is delivered into the tissue during photoradiation therapy will be absorbed and converted into heat. The resulting temperature rise may result in hyperthermal contributions to the cell kill or there may be synergistic effects between hyperthermal therapy and photo-radiation therapy.
