Problem Statement

This project is aimed at designing a device that allows for accurate and repeatable calibration of an optical probe that will be used in Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) for the treatment of abscesses in a hospice setting. The intended device needs to be sterile, block out room light, and hold the PDT probe in place during measurements to eliminate human error and maintain patient safety.
