(a) Infrared thermal images of the control, with no change in temperature observed; (b) 24 h after implantation, 5 min of irradiation increased the temperature to 46 °C; (c) 48 h after implantation, 1 min of irradiation increased the site temperature to 46 °C; when the irradiation time was increased, the area stayed at 46 °C, but the heat spread across a larger area. Irradiation times are 0, 1, 3 and 5 min.
