ABSTRACT
The development in a common framework of a direct Boundary Element Method (BEM) is explored to solve the radiative and transient thermal transport problems related to light-tissue interaction. The method exploits the appropriate fundamental Green's solution in each case, and the specific case of modelling laser/LED based therapies in human cancer treatment is addressed. Commonality of data structures between the radiative and transient thermal solvers makes the coding straightforward.
