Paper Abstract

For the safe and reproducible application of lasers in medicine, laser fluorescence spectroscopy (LFS) offers a new instrument. NADH, an enzyme of cell energy metabolism, shows a strong fluorescence band at 480 nm. The NADH concentration gives an opportunity for investigation of dysfunctional metabolism of tissue.
