Matching the Energy Source to the Clinical Need: Proceedings of a Conference Held 23-24 January, 2000, San Jose, California
SPIE Optical Engineering Press, 2000 - Medical - 577 pages
Papers from a January 2000 conference, by physicians, surgeons, engineers, physicists, and other scientists skilled in thermal therapy of benign and malignant disease, examine advances in controlled energy delivery using laser, microwave, ultrasound, radiofrequency, and other modalities. Specific subjects include thermal techniques for reshaping the cornea, new energy sources for catheter ablation, minimally invasive thermal brain treatment, thermal therapy techniques for skin and superficial tissue disease, and magnetic resonance techniques for real-time assessment of thermal treatment.
