    Improving treatment efficacy with biological or biophysical feedback

    Optical measurements of tissue changes during photodynamic and radiation-based cancer treatments help to develop and improve these therapies.  Novel optical technologies can provide detailed microscopic information about tissue structure and physiology in a non-invasive manner, minimizing patient discomfort. This otherwise unobtainable information can help physicians select the best treatments, thus greatly benefiting patients. When used for early disease detection, it results in more effective curative therapies. It also allows inspection of the progress of various therapies to ensure they are working, enabling improvements to be made. We have investigated this last aspect of the benefits of optical methods, showing how ...
