Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is emerging as a treatment modality for the management of neoplastic disease. Despite considerable clinical success, its application for the treatment of deep-seated lesions is constrained by the inability of visible light to penetrate deeply into tissues. An emerging alternative approach exploits the fact that many photosensitisers respond to ultrasound, eliciting cytotoxic effects on target cells and tissues; this has become known as sonodynamic therapy (SDT).
