Abstract
In this paper, we optimized the PDT laser system to improve the therapy effects of malignancies. In order to optimizes, the variation of laser output and specific wavelength shift have to reduced. To improved the PDT therapy clincian require the diverse radiation mode which irradiate the tumor surface. Continuous wave mode that general application may causes tissue thermal damage not only to tumor tissue, but also to nomal tissue. Therefore, we suggested new technique for radiation method to improved PDT effects and prevented to the thermal effects for the tissue. In experimental we verified the stability of wavelength, laser output stability and proved the reduced thermal effects to the tissue using the pulse & burst radiation modes in vitro.
