Paper Abstract

For using in the complex for diagnostics and therapy tumors with the aid photodynamic therapy the special fiberscope was developed. Ergonomic principles are incorporated in the design of these compact and lightweight control heads. The efficiency of phototreatment could be improved by reducing the traumatism of normal tissues during the phototherapeutic procedures with achieving the homogeneous distribution of laser emission intensity on the tumor surface and with decreasing the labor intensiveness of phototreatment. The method forming and delivering the image of phototreatment to tumor with the aid special fiberscope was described.
