Abstract
This paper deals with photosensitizer quantification in patients undergoing photodynamic therapy. Both fluorescence and diffuse reflectance spectroscopy were applied to evaluate concentration of sulphonated aluminum phthalocyanine in different tissues. The mixtures of Intralipid, blood and photosensitizer with different concentrations were used as standard samples to solve the problem in question. While fluorescence method is more sensitive and more convenient to apply in clinics, the absorption technique may be applied to non fluorescent dyes and used to evaluate the shifts in adsorption peak position due to interaction of dye with tissues. Finally, the concentration dynamics of non fluorescent dye (cobalt phthalocyanine) in patients was obtained with the use of absorption method alone.
