Abstract:

The purpose of the paper is threefold First, to provide data necessary for military and civilian safety communities by presenting experimentally determined threshold doses, from two independent studies, for the minimal detectable changes in cornea and skin following exposure to CO2 laser radiation. Second, to test the validity of a mathematical model in predicting damage thresholds. Third, to determine the extent this model accounts for differences in the experimentally determined dose-response relationships for the two tissues studied.
