Modeling of Optical Properties of Normal and Tumor Tissue Using Reflectance Spectra for Appropriate Dosimetry in Photodynamic Therapy

N. Naghavi and M.H. Miran Baygi

Abstract:
The evolution of photodynamic therapy (PDT) to a fully developed treatment modality requires the development of appropriate dosimetry to ensure proper quality control during treatments. The parameters measured for PDT quality control are drug accumulation and penetration depth. In this study, a model has been developed based on reflectance spectroscopy to help understanding light propagation from light delivery system to tissue and vice versa. This model can be used to determine the depth of tissue necrosis during PDT and to evaluate and improve the dosimetry.
