Medisun PDT 9000
medisun PDT 9000 is an innovative light treatment system for the painless exposure of photodynamic therapy (PDT) with polychromatic spectra from a high power LED light source.
The main indications are actinic keratoses, which are reported for a steady increase worldwide. Actinic keratoses are a preliminary stage to skin cancer, usually associated with excessive exposure to the sun during life, e.g. in outdoor occupations.
Therefore, the workmen`s compensation boards in Germany have recognized actinic keratosis as an occupational disease for many professions. Patients in these cases have a lifelong right to get paid the treatment costs.
Conventional red light PDT has been established for many years as it has proven to be very effective. However, the therapy protocols used are usually associated with great pain for the patients.
With the outdoor daylight PDT with natural sunlight, an alternative therapy protocol has been developed that contains all wavelengths of light and is less painful. However, the actual irradiance and the spectral composition of the light will depend on some uncontrollable factors such as the season, time of day, temperature, elevation above sea level, geographical location and weather conditions.
In certain weather conditions, e.g. below + 10 ° C, the outdoor daylight PDT can not be performed at all or the effect can not be calculated and is not reproducible. In addition, sunscreen must also be applied. However, the outdoor daylight PDT is considered to be less painful than the conventional red light PDT.
