    The Use of Cross-Polarization OCT in Determining the Dynamics of the State of Pathological and Normal Tissues During Radiation and Photodynamic Therapy

    The aim of the investigation was to evaluate the possibilities for using cross-polarization optical coherence tomography (CP OCT) to monitor the effectiveness of treatment of cancer of the mouth cavity and of the cervix uteri after photodynamic therapy (PDT) and radiation therapy (RT). Materials and Methods. The CP OCT investigation was performed with an OCT-1300U (Institute of Applied Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences, LLC “Biomedtech”, Russia) tomograph. The monitoring of the two types of treatment was performed after different periods of exposure: for RT of the mouth cavity cancer — once every 2–3 days throughout the whole course ...
