Paper Abstract

The photodynamic therapy with saturating of photochemical dose (PD) using three different techniques was studied theoretically. At saturation the PD value does not depend on the light fluence and is determined by concentration of photosensitizer or oxygen. The possibility of creating more uniform therapeutic dose distribution throughout a tumor is shown.
