Paper Abstract

The possibility of laser overheating of tumors in comparison with normal tissues at the same laser actions was explained by means of computer calculations. This effect of overheating of tumors was called selectivity of laser actions on the tumors. The experiments on the experimental animals gave the results which were in a good agreement (qualitatively) with our calculations. These computer calculations of tissues heating can be used for photodynamic therapy and laser therapy also.
