Abstract (300 words maximum)

Although there are many medical applications of laser therapy such as dermatological purposes or cancer treatment, there are also applications of lasers in surgery. Despite the current use of lasers for medical applications, there is insufficient data relating cell necrosis to exposure time and power levels. This research aims to quantify cell damage using histology data. The long term goal of this project is to develop a numerical model to allow better predict of cell necrosis due to laser irradiation due to dwell time and energy deposition.
