Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Aminolevulinic acid induced Protoporphyrin IX fluorescence accumulates preferentially in brain tumor tissue. Microscopic and macroscopic studies are contrasted to determine the utility as a diagnostic measure of tumor extent in vivo for tracking therapeutic response.
