As all practitioners know, the rising cost of health care affects everyone. Physician reimbursements are lower but patients are frustrated by higher premiums. Then they discover they have terribly high deductibles and still have to pay significantly for care, even with their insurance. As doctors, we just want to treat our patients and guide them on a path to healing. At the same time, patients just want to get better!
Effect of Intensity Modulation of a CO2 Laser Beam on the Temperature of a Targeted Thermal Sensor Simulating Biological Tissue
This study analyses the conditions and characteristics of
thermal/temperature response of a
bulk PTC-type thermal sensor head
(thermistor) irradiated by a CO 2 laser beam are presented. Unmodulated (CW) and square-wave intensity modulated beam are compared.
