Paper Abstract

In this study, cylindrical diffusing optical fiber probe (CDOFP) used for tumor treatment using PDT method is developed and analyzed. Diffusing beam profile of 5mm to 40mm tip length probe is produced and analyzed using laser scribing equipment developed in a previous research. Ball tip at the tip of CDOFP was developed for easier infiltration of tissues and the beam profile of such tip is reviewed. Additionally, CDOFP for PDT tumor treatment was used for laser coagulation test on animal tissue. CDOFP with diffusing tip length 5mm and 15mm was infiltrated inside a cow's liver tissue to process laser coagulation test. Coagulation and thermal damage was measured with twice the maximum intensity of laser, where maximum intensity in-vivo test is 1W 200J.
