  • Publication number: 20210236842
    Abstract: A light radiating unit provided at a distal end portion of an optical fiber includes a first light radiating unit having a predetermined length in a longitudinal direction and capable of radiating therapeutic light having first intensity and a second light radiating unit connected consecutively to the first light radiating unit in the longitudinal direction and configured to radiate therapeutic light having second intensity lower than the first intensity. Consequently, even when a bladder, which is a hollow organ, and a urethra, which is a conduit, are irradiated with the therapeutic light at a time, intensity of the therapeutic light with which surfaces (inner wall surfaces) of respective parts are irradiated is equalized.
