Q.Light Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)
PDT is an attractive method of treating skin cancers without surgery and with excellent results aesthetically, but its widespread implementation has been held up by high costs.
Swiss manufacturers have taken the lead in non-laser phototherapy and Q.Products AG makes the largest range of flexible and specialised non-laser devices.
The flexible model for medical professionals who require a wide range of treatment options now has the capability to deliver the correct wavelengths of red, incoherent polarised light necessary to activate photosensitising creams such as Metvix® for PDT.
Q.Light® PDT, portable model
There is an additional blue diagnosis filter, which is used with a revealing cream to help identify lesions.
The specialised light sources required were very expensive and could not be used for anything else.
Q.Light® PRO is a modular device using filter modules of different characteristics to treat a wide range of medical conditions.
With the diagnosis and PDT treatment filter modules this reduces the cost of PDT equipment substantially, making treatments more viable financially.
Diagnosis: blue light 385nm - 450nm
PDT Treament: red, incoherent polarised light, 620nm - 780nm
Other optional filter modules allow phototherapy treatments of dermatological conditions, e.g. psoriasis and acne, acute or chronic wounds (see Q.Light phototherapy).
Together these make Q.Light® PRO a highly attractive and flexible device for dermatologists and skin cancer specialists with the capability of taking on new functions as required.
