Hirata A, Watanabe S, Kojima M, Hata I, et al. (2006)

This group reported in 2004 that higher temperatures were observed in the eyes of anesthetized than in those of unanesthetized rabbits (Kojima 2004).

In the current paper they computationally verified the effect of anesthesia on temperature variations in the rabbit eye due to microwave energy. They used a computational rabbit phantom, derived from x-ray CT images. Thermal constants were derived by comparing measured and calculated temperatures. For intense microwave exposure to the rabbit eye, time courses of calculated and measured temperatures were in good agreement for cases both with and without anesthesia. The thermoregulatory response was confirmed to be inactivated, and blood flow and basal metabolism was reduced.
