Abstract

Monitoring of local temperature in tissue undergoing Laser Ablation (LA) could be particularly beneficial to optimize treatment outcomes. A number of both invasive and non-invasive thermometric techniques may be employed to perform this task. Among others, Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) sensors show the following valuable characteristics for temperature monitoring during LA: good sensitivity and accuracy, and immunity from electromagnetic interferences. The main drawbacks are their intrinsic invasiveness and the sensitivity to strain, which can entail measurement error for respiratory and patient movements.
