Conference paper


Photodynamic therapy (PDT) has recently attracted much attention, especially among urologists, because it appears to be a selective form of cancer treatment which causes minimal damage to surrounding normal tissues. In particular, the multifocal bladder carcinoma in situ, up to now difficult to detect endoscopically, has become a new domain for the integral laser photodynamic therapy [1–3].
