Paper Abstract

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) wit h total photobleaching of a photosensitizer (PS) was studied theoretically. The equations for spatial-temporal distribution of photochemical dose (PD) under various irradiations were obtained. Both surface irradiation and interstitial irradiation were considered. The possibilities of having constant therapeutic dose within a large extent of a tissue and even of obtaining the maximal dose at a particular depth were shown.
