Blood flow dynamics during local photoreaction in a head and neck tumor model

Abstract

We have applied continuous blood flow dynamics, quantified with diffuse correlation spectroscopy (DCS), in investigating photodynamic therapy (PDT) induced local photoreaction in a head and neck tumor model. Photoclor (0.47μmol/kg) was intravenously administered 24 h before PDT. Two types of fluence rates were implemented: Low fluence rate (14mW/cm2) and… (More)
