Paper Abstract

In our previous list of various technologies for our program for laser induced subsurface imagery, we have added these additional procedures: polarized light, confocal microscopy, and intravascular Doppler for kinetic imagery with the 3-D volumetric scanner display. To the report of Phase I, transillumination, we now add transillumination with single or multiplex fiber optics. This provides for the development of deeper imagery, either directly or by diffusion of tissue. For cancer foci, with added specific chromophores, fiber optics in this PDT program can produce imagery directly in the tissue by the fiber optic or by induced fluorescence of the cancer mass.
