> 3. Image-guided therapy, Lasers & PDT for treatment and diagnosis

Chairs: Elena Zagaynova,Privolzhsky research medical University, Nizhny Novgorod, Russia (coordinator)

Georges Wagnières, EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland, Céline Frochot, University of Lorraine, Nancy, France, Christine Vever-Bizet, Université Pierre et Marie Curie, France, Serge Mordon, University of Lille, France

In this session, new approaches to laser and PDT therapy will be discussed. Special attention will be paid to optical monitoring of therapy using lasers. The session will organically combine the reports of physicists, chemists and clinicians. That will allow to consider the problem comprehensively.
