The application of color Schlieren techniques in the thermal imaging of laser-tissue interaction was quantified by ray-tracing program. For calibration, the program was tested on well-defined optical configurations such as spherical and index-gradient lenses. The method has been a helpful tool to quantify the absolute temperatures in color images from simple geometries.
