Abstract

Dosimetry of laser fluence rates within a tissue are required for proper planning of photodynamic therapy at a specific site on a given individual. A simple one-dimensional theory of light penetration into tissue is presented. A device for measurement of the total reflectance and the lateral diffusion of light provides a simple means for specifying the tissue optical parameters that govern laser dosimetry. Rules of thumb for complicating factors such as narrow laser beams and optical fiber delivery are discussed.
