Lack of sensory feedback during laser surgery prevents surgeons from discerning the exact location of the incision, which increases duration and complexity of the treatment. A new method for monitoring laser ablation procedures is presented that accomplishes high resolution tracking of the three dimensional lesion profile by detecting shock waves emanating from the ablation spot and using time-of-flight data from multiple acoustic detectors for reconstructing the incision location.
