Paper Abstract

Present work deals with diagnostics of bladder tumors with the use of 5-amino-levulinic acid (ALA) by means of fluorescence image analysis in blue light followed by spectral fluorescence analysis of biopsy samples taken from suspicious bladder sites. It was found that fluorescence intensity of benign formations is lower than that of tumors suggesting the possible increasing of specificity of diagnostics with the use of spectral analysis.
