What does PDT with Metvix involve?

We do not treat any lesions with PDT without prior biopsy (small punch sample taken) to pathologically confirm the type and depth of tumor. We also use Ultrasound imaging to confirm the extend and depths of the lesion.

Lesion preparation:

Application of Metivx:

Exposure to Aktilite:

To determine that the treatment was successful, we monitor the treated lesion 3 months and 12 months after the PDT treatment with Ultrasound imaging.
