Thermal Treatment of Tissue: Energy Delivery and Assessment III
The ablation rate of articular cartilage and fibrocartilage (meniscus), were quantified to examine wavelength and tissue-composition dependence of ablation efficiency for selected mid-infrared wavelengths. The wavelengths tested were 2.9 µm (water dominant absorption), 6.1 (protein and water absorption) and 6.45 µm (protein dominant absorption) generated by the Free Electron Laser (FEL) at Vanderbilt University.
