An ultrasound coupled handheld-probe-based optical fluorescence molecular tomography (FMT) system has been in development for the purpose of quantifying the production of Protoporphyrin IX (PPIX) in aminolevulinic acid treated (ALA), Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC) in vivo. The design couples fiber-based spectral sampling of PPIX fluorescence emission with a(More)
UNLABELLED Nanoparticle delivery into solid tumors is affected by vessel density, interstitial fluid pressure (IFP) and collagen, as shown in this article by contrasting the in vivo macroscopic quantitative uptake of 40 nm fluorescent beads in three tumor types.The fluorescence uptake was quantified on individual animals by normalization with the(More)
Subsurface fluorescence imaging is desirable for medical applications, including protoporphyrin-IX (PpIX)-based skin tumor diagnosis, surgical guidance, and dosimetry in photodynamic therapy. While tissue optical properties and heterogeneities make true subsurface fluorescence mapping an ill-posed problem, ultrasound-guided fluorescence-tomography (USFT)(More)
Treatment monitoring of Aminolevunilic-acid (ALA) Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) of basal-cell carcinoma (BCC) calls for superficial and subsurface imaging techniques. While superficial imagers exist for this purpose, their ability to assess PpIX levels in thick lesions is poor; additionally few treatment centers have the capability to measure ALA-induced PpIX(More)
The in vivo performance of a Fluorescence Molecular Tomography system as a function of pathophysiological parameters that determine the penetration of nonbinding fluorescent nanoparticle was examined through imaging of a series of three tumor models. The pathophysiological parameters examined were, vessel density, interstitial fluid pressure (IFP), and(More)
