Clinical fluorescence spectroscopy and imaging for the detection of early carcinoma by autofluorescence bronchoscopy and the study of the protoporphyrin IX pharmacokinetics in the endometrium.

The aim of this thesis is to optimise and gain fundamental information on two applications of photomedicine using fluorescence imaging and spectrofluorometry: (1) the detection of early bronchial cancer by autofluorescence imaging and (2) the endometrial ablation by photodynamic therapy (PDT) based on the use of Protoporphyrin IX (PpIX).
