abstract

  • We describe a novel scanning-laser system for imaging type-II photodynamically generated singlet oxygen (1O2[1delta(g)]) luminescence and demonstrate it in vivo in an intradermal tumor model in mice. We verify the strong oxygen-dependence of the signal and show that the images are near the practical resolution limit.
