Paper Abstract

We used the Monte Carlo method to evaluate UV-A radiation penetration through human skin (epidermis and dermis). Calculations were performed for multilayered medium, refractive indices mismatch on boundaries of the sample and finite width of incident beam. The fluence rate distributions of UV-A radiation (wavelength 337 nm) within tissue are presented. In order to optimize the laser PUVA treatment of psoriasis were have developed the mathematical model of the dynamics of cell processed within epidermis. The task of optimal control for PUVA treatment is formulated
