Paper Abstract

The utility to perform treatment planning for transbronchial light delivery is investigated using Monte Carlo simulations. Optical properties of pig and human lungs were determined, and dose volume histograms determined. These dose volume histograms indicate for example the minimum photosensitizer specific uptake ratio required to achieve selective tumour destruction.
