Fluorescence monitoring and effect of photodynamic therapy for port wine stains

Tuesday, March 2, 2010 - 12:28 in Health & Medicine

It is known that fluctuations in the treatment outcome of photodynamic therapy between patients are related to the concentration of photosensitizer in target tissue. Researchers recently carried out a study in order to establish a fluorescence method not only providing a semi-quantitative measurement of photosensitizer concentration but also predicting the efficacy of PDT for port wine stains.
