Abstract
In recent years much work has been done to show treatment efficacy using daylight as the activation mechanism of PpIX-based PDT for non-melanoma skin cancers and pre-cancerous actinic keratosis. Many previous studies assume sufficient fluence is delivered during a 2-3 hour period, but fail to consider shifts in the UV spectral composition throughout the day and transient weather conditions. Using a model-based approach we have developed a dose planning application to provide clinicians with information regarding minimum necessary treatment times. Clinical photobleaching data comparing indoor daylight and conventional red-light PDT have been collected to test the viability of this model.
