Abstract
The use of light emitted accompanying a laser procedure on diseased sites within the heart and circulatory system, a procedure called laser angioplasty, provides a potentially simple, available monitor of the properites of the tissue target site. The nature and physical makeup of the site to be lased, as well as the evolution of the photoablation of the site, may be monitored in a fluorescence measurement.
