Paper Abstract

Experimental results of initial testing dye-laser "LITT-PDT" pumped by a copper vapor laser are presented. "LITT PDT" is a modern laser medical complex on CVL-pumped dye laser, generating radiation in a red spectrum area with a tuning wavelength of 630 - 700 nm and preserving high intensity of radiation on each wavelength, necessary for treatment by a photodynamic therapeutic method (PDM). Radiation in a red spectrum area (630 - 700 nm) enables treatment for oncological diseases by PDM using any photosensitizer. The given laser medical complex, generating radiation simultaneously on yellow and green discrete spectrum lines, makes methods of low intensive laser therapy for treatment of precancer and dermatological diseases possible.
