Light penetration in bladder tissue: implications for the intravesical photodynamic therapy of bladder tumours.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES To assess (i) the optical properties and depth of penetration of varying wavelengths of light in ex-vivo human bladder tissue, using specimens of normal bladder wall, transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) and bladder tissue after exposure to ionizing radiation; and (ii) to estimate the depth of bladder wall containing cancer that could potentially be… (More)
