A previously described experimental approach using a thermocouple array grid to measure the resultant thermal was used to assess the thermal heating characteristics of two near infrared (IR) diode laser systems applied to porcine tissue. Results indicate that experimentally observed heating curves are dependent on the tissue composition and are broadly similar to those obtained from a tissue phantom model which has adjustable optical properties.
