PURPOSE To develop a technique for noninvasive and real-time monitoring of chorioretinal temperature in transpupillary thermotherapy (TTT). METHOD A modified slit lamp, which was equipped with two laser wavelengths (490 nm for illumination and fluorescein excitation and 810 nm for hyperthermia), was developed for TTT and temperature monitoring. Five types of liposomes were prepared, and their phase-transition temperatures were 40 degrees C, 46 degrees C, 47 degrees C, 48 degrees C, and 52… CONTINUE READING
