Abstract

The development of minimally invasive energy-based medical technologies continues to change the practice of medicine. The science behind their associated tissue effects has been better elucidated, in part due to improved histopathologic methods. These pathology techniques for evaluating thermal tissue changes evolved from gross observations to microscopic evaluations to viability staining. Further, these individual histopathology methods have been adapted specifically for high dose ablative versus low dose ablative versus non-ablative rejuvenation and hyperthermic versus cryothermic applications. A review of current pathology techniques should enhance their application to the continued development of medical devices.
