Paper Abstract

In this presentation, the utility of PDT will be described in a variety of clinical situations. Attention will not only be paid to areas of recognized utility in skin and mucosal membrane lesions, but also areas of clinical investigation which are ongoing. Special attention will be given to lesions of pleural and peritoneal cavities and some discussion will be aimed at other targets as well, including treatments of selected solid tumors by interstitial techniques.
