Paper Abstract

The design of a fibre optic probe for the fluorescence detection of photosensitizing drugs used in photochemotherapy is described. The probe is designed to use Raman scattering of the exciting radiation by water molecules to correct for the variable optical properties of in vivo sample volumes. In vitro tests of the probe in scattering and non-scattering media are reported, and the feasibility of obtaining quantitative data in vivo is discussed.
