By Markolf H. Niemz

Laser-Tissue Interactions offers a radical description of the basics and purposes during this box. uncomplicated strategies similar to the optical and thermal houses of tissue, a number of the varieties of tissue ablation, and optical breakdown and its similar results are taken care of intimately. particular realization is given to mathematical instruments (Monte Carlo simulations, the Kubelka--Munk conception etc.) and authorized innovations (photodynamic remedy, laser-induced interstitial thermotherapy etc.). The half on purposes experiences clinically appropriate equipment in sleek medication utilizing the newest references. The final bankruptcy covers modern-day criteria of laser defense, with a cautious number of crucial directions released via the Laser Institute of the United States. a number of examine photos, illustrations, tables and entire summaries make this ebook an invaluable consultant for graduate scholars, scientists, and clinical practitioners. New end-of-chapter workouts supply readers with the chance to ascertain their knowing of key strategies and methods.

The Technology of Orgasm: ''Hysteria,'' the Vibrator, and Women's Sexual Satisfaction (Johns Hopkins Studies in the History of Technology)

From the time of Hippocrates until eventually the Nineteen Twenties, massaging girl sufferers to orgasm used to be a staple of clinical perform between Western physicians within the remedy of "hysteria," an illness as soon as thought of either universal and protracted in girls. medical professionals loathed this time-consuming strategy and for hundreds of years depended on midwives.

Laparoscopic Hernia Surgery: An Operative Guide (Arnold Publication)

Fix of easy and complicated belly hernias by way of the laparoscopic process is now the tactic of selection in lots of facilities. Laparoscopic fix bargains identical results to open fix, with the extra merits of higher sufferer pride and decreased hospitalization. For a few hernias, particularly incisional and hiatal, the result seems to be stronger utilizing the minimally invasive approach.

Worse than the Disease: Pitfalls of Medical Progress

This publication examines 4 scientific options that epitomize the pitfalls of development: DES, a man-made estrogen prescribed to hundreds of thousands of girls to avoid miscarriages, which produced devastating unwanted side effects; the synthetic center; the 1976 swine flu immunization application; and genetic engineering. Dutton and the participants hint the human offerings that govern clinical and medical innovation and discover the political, monetary, and social components that impression these offerings.

B: α = 9αs . C: αs = 9α. 3. 05. 5. 95. 4. Lambert’s law describes the loss in intensity due to A: absorption. B: scattering. C: total attenuation. 5. If g is the coefficient of anisotropy, then isotropic scattering is characterized by A: g = 0. 5. C: g = 1. 6. 5 for most glasses at visible wavelengths. How much light is lost due to reflection, when a red laser beam accidentally exits a laboratory through an observation window? 7. A 1 mm thick optical filter has an absorption coefficient of 10 cm−1 for a He-Ne laser at a wavelength of 633 nm.

First results regarding optical tissue properties with this more accurate theory were published by Pickering et al. (1993). 40 2. Light and Matter Since the Kubelka–Munk theory is one of the most frequently used methods to obtain data on optical tissue properties, we shall briefly discuss how the Kubelka–Munk coefficients introduced in Sect. 5 relate to measured values of diffuse reflectance and transmission. 47) where D is the optical thickness of the slab to be considered, and SKM is the Kubelka–Munk coefficient for scattering.

Another disadvantage is the necessity of extensive computer calculations. Diffusion Approximation. e. 37) tends to be almost isotropic. 43) where Id is the diffuse intensity, and the vector flux F d is determined by F d (r) = Jd (r, s) s dω . 43) constitute the diffusion approximation. 44) where κ2 is the diffusion parameter, and Q represents the source of scattered photons. It was shown by Ishimaru (1978) that 32 2. 33). 35), we thus have κ2 = 3ααt . 44) suggests the introduction of an effective diffusion length Leff and an effective attenuation coefficient αeff of diffuse light which can be defined by Leff = 1 1 =√ , κ 3ααt αeff = 1 = Leff 3ααt .
