Abstract

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) dosimetric tools are crucial for treatment planning and noninvasive monitoring by means of fluorescence. Present approaches consider usually a 1D problem, a simple photochemical process, or a spatially homogeneous photosensitizer. In this work, a radially resolved superficial photosensitizer fluorescence and 3D photochemical time-dependent PDT model are presented. The model provides a time-dependent estimation of tissue fluorescence and the photosensitizer and singlet oxygen 3D concentrations. The model is applied to a basal cell carcinoma treated by Metvix topical photosensitizer protocol. The analysis shows the potentiality in treatment planning and monitoring. The fluorescence results are in agreement with previous measurements.
