Abstract Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a minimally-invasive cancer therapy which uses a light-activated drug (photosensitizer/PS). When the photosensitizer absorbs a photon, it excites tissue oxygen into a reactive state which causes very localized cell damage. The light field distribution inside the tissue is therefore one of the critical parameters...
